Community planting day at

The Awarua wetland restoration is part of an ongoing project by Arowhenua to restore the natural flax-pukio wetland opposite the Marae.

The Environment Canterbury Tuia and IMS programmes are supporting Arowhenua in this project allocated by the Orari-Opihi-Pareora Zone Committee.
