Restoration Assistant


Mokihi Trust







Mokihi Trust was formed in 2015.  The group was an initiative of Te Kakano - an established native plant nursery and restoration group based in Wanaka.  Part of Te Kakano's vision is to sow the seed of enhancing native restoration through other communities on the Clutha  River.  Local Cromwell people stepped up to form their own group and Mokihi trust was born.  Their mission statement is:  To engage, motivate and educate the community in sustainable ecological restoration so as to enhance and restore Cromwell's indigenous ecosystem for now and future generations.

Volunteers are the heart of the Mokihi Trust group and welcome anyone interested in native habitat restoration. Help them re-build native habitats one plant at a time, get your hands dirty and enjoy being out in the fresh air. Your help can really make a difference. 

Volunteers enjoy spending time out in the fresh air in a stunning setting and meeting people.  They really gain satisfaction in knowing they are contributing to enhance our local environment and native biodiversity.  Many people also gain additional skills and knowledge such as native plant ID and restoration principles.


A willingness to get involved, get your hands dirty and enjoy yourself.
