School Trips

Children love learning about the estuary and visiting this beautiful environment.

The Manawatu Estuary Trust is more than happy to meet school groups and talk to them about the estuary - explaining why it is a special place and how we can look after it, as well as showing some of the wildlife that lives there.

If you are interested in a school visit and would like someone from the Manawatu Estuary Trust to talk to your group, please contact us here.

The Manawatu Estuary Trust has produced resources that can be used for school visits, including a downloadable booklet about some of the birds that can be seen at the estuary.

There are also beautifully illustrated books about some of the animals found at the estuary. These books are written by Marlene Bennetts with illustrations by Trish Bowles. View the book gallery here.
