LEARNZ Field Trip: Hīkoi for hauora

Explore the outdoors, get close to nature, connect with our whenua.

Join this online LEARNZ field trip, for a wellbeing hīkoi in the Haakarimata Ranges near Ngāruawāhia. Experience being in nature and connect with the whenua in this environmentally and culturally significant part of the motu.

Enjoying and connecting with te taiao (the natural environment) can make us feel better and contribute to our wellbeing. Exploring and understanding te taiao can also help us to look after places like the Haakarimata Ranges as taonga - just like kaitiaki have for generations.

Travel online to Waikato to:

  • follow in the footsteps of ancestors who traversed this place
  • explore what makes the Haakarimata Ranges environmentally and historically significant
  • meet people protecting taonga ecology in this natural heritage area
  • find walks near you to explore and enjoy, look after, and boost your hauora.

All the field trip material will be available from March 13th, including video, a Google Earth for Web tour and online quizzes will be available then.
