Our Mission:

The restoration of the Grovetown Lagoon to enhance the habitat for fish and bird life, and to enable gathering of food and encourage recreational uses

The Grovetown Lagoon Project presents a unique opportunity for the Marlborough community to come together bring about positive environmental change enhancing ecology, improving water quality and the landscape.

More about us

The Grovetown Lagoon is an oxbow loop of the Wairau River. While it is quite highly modified, it is one of the largest remaining areas of natural value on the Wairau Plain, with areas of open water, swampy ground, springs and adjoining land. It is highly valued by local iwi as a resource for food and plant materials, but has been degraded and altered over time.

A project aimed at restoring the Grovetown Lagoon was initiated in 2002. It was a combined effort between local iwi groups (Te Runanga A Rangitane O Wairau, Ngati Rarua and Ngati Toarangatira), the Marlborough District Council, the Department of Conservation. We are a small dedicated band of people from the community working together to restore and enhance the natural values of the Lagoon.
