Conference 2003
Greening the City:
Bringing Biodiversity Back
into the Urban Environment


Many years ago Hugh Wilson had a dream. A renowned South Island botanist and conservationist, he dreamt of restoring a patch of Banks Peninsula to its original, pristine condition.

Twenty-five years later his vision has almost come to fruition. From a gorse-covered block, with a small remnant of ancient bush, he and a group of enthusiastic helpers have created the Hinewai Nature Reserve, a wonderful wilderness which has become one of the treasures of Banks Peninsula, renowned not only in the South Island but throughout New Zealand.
