The article highlights a field trip to the Whaingaroa Harbour during the 2007 annual conference of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association. After dining at Raglan Surf Club and admiring the view of the famed surfing beach the participants were given a run down on the work of the Whaingaroa Harbour Care group by Fred Litchwark. After the lecture was over they were taken round an example of the riparian planting and fencing that had been carried out on some of the nearby farmland. David Bergin from Scion took them through the plans and explained how the native planting had been successful.
