Volunteers - help create a Wetland Centre

A major wetland restoration project is underway inside a pest fence at Rotopiko/ Serpentine, home of the future National Wetland Centre being built by the National Wetland Trust with grants from the Waikato River Clean-up Trust, WCEET, Lottery Environment and Heritage Fund, Waikato Regional Council, WEL Energy and many other supporters.

The Trust is keen to hear from willing volunteers - let us know if you want to help out or fill out our Volunteer for Wetlands form.


Planning to design a wetland interpretation panel?

The NWT has produced a series of generic interpretation panels for several wetland types (lowland swamp, kahikatea swamp forest, peat lake and restiad bog). These have been designed for our members and community groups who wish to install interpretation panels without incurring a design cost. Take a look, and if you are keen to have some of these made for your wetland let us know.
