Round the Bays - Frank Kitts-121.jpg


Lots of trees are being planted throughout the Wellington region to help improve our environment. Trees contribute to the environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. However, many trees that are planted don’t survive due to grasses, weeds, and other plants competing for sunlight and nutrients in the soil.   

To tackle this problem, CVNZ and Sport Wellington have partnered on an initiative enabling everyone who registers for Wellington Round the Bays 2021 to automatically ‘adopt a tree’ on Mount Vic (at no cost). The more people who register for the event, the larger the area of land on Mount Vic that Sport Wellington will manage the conservation of, in partnership with CVNZ. Through the event, a forest will flourish!
