Manawa Karioi Ecological Restoration Project is one of Wellington's oldest reforestation projects and is on land that is part of Tapu Te Ranga Marae.
Kaumatua Bruce Stewart had a large plot of land that was primarily gorse, blackberry and grass, the vision was for a 'bird and bush reserve'.
Manawa Karioi Society Incorporated was formed in 1990 to manage the project and the first seedlings were planted in 1991.
Now, 25 years later, much of the site is covered in native bush with the abundance and diversity of native plants and animals continuing to increase. Manawa Karioi is all open public access and there is a network of tracks for public enjoyment.
