Celebrating the great work that Greening Taupō and Kids Greening Taupō do in the community by joining in ‘Greening Taupō’! On Friday 7 June 2024 join in and let’s paint the town GREEN!

Celebrations will include a community Arbor Day Planting Event with support from Taupo District Council. Join between 9.30 am and 1 pm to plant some trees, participate in the range of free activities and enjoy a free sausage or soup. Special guests will be there to entertain and educate, along with a huge range of conservation experts and local businesses running free fun activities.

Get your staff to dress in green, decorate your shop/business in green, and collect donations for Greening Taupō and Kids Greening Taupō. Schools and ECE centres are encouraged to have a ‘Dress up in Green’ mufti day and to collect gold coin donations. Participate in the Arbor Day Community Planting Day, or focus on environmental/conservation activities at your business or school for the day.

All money raised will go towards allowing Greening Taupō and Kids Greening Taupō to continue with the great work that they do. Together they have planted over 180,000 native trees in Taupō so far, with many more planting days planned for 2024. They also provide free environmental education, events and teacher professional development to kindergartens and schools in Taupō.
