In 2018 Mahurangi College began a pest monitoring and trapping program working alongside Auckland Council, in the bush surrounding our school and river Mahurangi College takes a multi-pronged approach in enhancing student learning around concepts associated with Kaitiakitanga (our-place) including ecosystem restoration, pest-animal and pest-plant control.

The learning is centred around the Mahurangi Forest Restoration Project and is curriculum-based. Initially, the Living Classroom project is based around College grounds, View Road Bush Reserve and Falls Road River Esplanade Reserves. Council has conducted an Ecological Site Assessment which supports schools activities.
