Adventure awaits on the Great Taste Trail on Sunday

Sunday 15th October is a great chance to get your children into the Kiwi Guardians programme.
This is a wonderful partnership between the Department of Conservation (DoC) and Toyota New Zealand. On a local level the team at Bowater Toyota are right behind it and are happily driving the programme right here in the Top of the South. 

A few months ago the Department of Conservation launched two new Kiwi Guardian Trails in the region, one at Sandeman Reserve on the Great Taste Bike Trail just west of Richmond, and another at Jimmy Lee Creek in the Richmond Foothills. Sunday 15th October is a great opportunity on the last weekend of the school holidays to come along and enjoy some fun activities as well as checking out the Kiwi Guardians Trail, and gaining the right to claim a Kiwi Guardians Medal.

We have been working with the local councils, along with the Top of the South Department of Conservation, in order to make sure that we can get the best use out of the Toyota Kiwi Guardians programme locally. This event is a great opportunity to get involved, do some activites, learn about our region, and do a Kiwi Guardian Trail, earning your kids the ability to claim a Kiwi Guardians Medal! Some of the team from Bowater Toyota will be on hand to help guide you through the process of signing your kids up online so that they can get really excited about all of the activities in the Kiwi Guardians Programme. 

Here is a map of the days events:

The event will be initially focused around the Sandeman Reserve area, with a great collection of folks coming together to provide some interesting and educational activities for the kids. Pack a picnic and bring your bikes - this is a great chance to do a really easy and accessible part of the Great Taste Bike Trail.
