Event description
A short film about Hugh Wilson, a botanist at Hinewai Reserve who has dedicated his life to regenerate his property from farmland to bush.

About this Event

When, in 1987, Hugh Wilson, a botanist at Hinewai Reserve, introduced ‘weed’ gorse to grow as a nurse canopy to regenerate farmland into native forest people were not only skeptical but outright angry.

Now considered a hero locally and across the country, Hugh oversees 1500 hectares resplendent in native forest, where birds and other wildlife are abundant and 47 known waterfalls are in permanent flow. He has proven without doubt that nature knows best – and that he is no fool.
