Violet Bonnington Reserve opens
« on: June 29, 2008, 09:57:48 AM »
On 28th of October 2006 the Minister of Conservation, Chris Carter, opened the Forest & Bird Violet Bonnington Reserve on Paradise Valley Rd. This was an important day for the Mount Ngongotaha project as the reserve now provides an excellent access point for the public to the Scenic Reserve.

The close co-operation between Forest & Bird and the Trust in the future management of the reserve was formalised by the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the two organisations. The signing was witnessed by Chris Carter.

The opportunity was taken for the Trust to sign a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Conservation to enable the Trust to have a role in the management of the Scenic Reserve. Local MP Steve Chadwick was the witness for this document.
