The Manawatu Estuary Trust enjoys giving people the opportunity to learn more about this very special place.

Every year the Manawatu Estuary Trust holds a

Welcome to the Birds Ceremony in October and

Farewell to the Birds in March.


These events invite the public to view the migratory birds. A short talk is given, and telescopes are provided so people can see the birds close up and identify the different wading birds.

The 2020 Farewell to the Birds will be held on Saturday 14 March.

Everyone is welcome.

We will be meeting at 1.30 pm

(before the high tide at 2.15pm)

at the viewing platform, Dawick Street 

(off Seabury Avenue), Foxton Beach.

More information is available here.
