Project Ruru

Opening 9/10th July

Project Ruru takes flight.  Fifteen artists have sculpted their interpretation of ruru in diverse designs and materials.   They have started to land here at the park.  These sculptures are integral to ‘Find the Roosting Ruru’ which becomes another adventure within the park.

This project is an opportunity to draw attention to this native bird and measures needed to protect it.  The morepork is our only native owl.  We want them to survive and thrive.  Its distinctive call is heard at night.  It is a silent nocturnal hunter that thrives in forests where it feeds on insects, mice and other small creatures.

Ruru breed within the park.  Sometimes visitors spot ruru asleep on high branches during the daytime here.  The park is located along the Waitakaruru Stream (Waitakaruru is Te Reo for owl by the water) so these little birds hold a special place in our hearts.

The park is joining forces with Wingspan and Mitre10 to recognise and provide for New Zealand’s ruru population.  With their help, Wintec students have made 20 nesting boxes that will be used to protect birds throughout the Waikato.

Activities will follow through the July school holidays. Book your tickets (starting at $16.32) for the opening celebration at www.eventbrite.co.nz. For more information www.sculpturepark.co.nz/ or Ph 027 567 0996.
