Chance to help save a mountain
Beautiful bush: June and Peter Grove hope to inspire others to help enhance

A mountain with a view
and the chance to help
preserve native bush is
on offer this weekend.
An open day at Mau-
takes place on Saturday
as part of Maungatapere
School s Garden Ramble.
The mountain is
covered in broadleaf for-
est and boasts rare
plants in its crater.
Peter and June Grove
own about half of the
mountain, with the
Department of Conser-
vation and three other
private landowners own-
ing the rest.
Peter has lived on his
property off State High-
way 14 for his whole 87
years, with his father
originally farming it.
Since 1981 the Groves
have protected their part
of the mountain with a
covenant and fenced it
off from stock.
More recently they
covenanted a piece of
land by their house to
allow guaranteed access.
The idea is to keep it
in perpetuity, June
It s still private land
even though it s covenan-
ted but this piece does
give easy access to the
The Groves are mem-
bers of the Maunga-
tapere Mountain Trust, a
charitable trust set up
about eight years ago to
protect the bush habitat.
Over the last four
years the trust has
culled animal pests like
possums thanks to fund-
ing from the Northland
The trust is now focus-
ing on weeds.
The aim is to eventu-
ally reintroduce lost nat-
ive bird species like kiwi,
saddleback and weka.
It s probably not in
my lifetime but we re
hoping to reintroduce
kiwi and weka and the
likes, he says.
We did have kiwi,
which I can remember,
Peter and June -- both
in their 80s -- are looking
for community support to
help with the habitat
The open day will
include stalls and infor-
mation from the trust,
Council, QEII Trust and
possibly the Department
Short bush walks will
also be held.
School Garden Ramble is
a annual fundraiser for
the school, offering
access to private gar-
