A walk along the Orongorongo Track is often a great auditory experience! Besides the bird-song, the sound of the many fast-flowing streams (like the Catchpool Stream depicted here) and of waterfalls nearby is both soothing and stimulating at the same time!

This kiwi wasn't wearing his gumboots. Look closely at this mud puddle and you will see some distinctive kiwi tracks. Photo credit:- Melody McLaughlin.

The Trust also needs occasional volunteers for the Catchpool Restoration Project. This project aims to give Nature a helping hand to speed up the reforestation of the hillsides with native plants and trees in order to quickly restore the original biodiversity of the area.
