WANTED: Trustees for the Waitaki Whitestone Geopark Trust

Updated: Jul 25, 2019

We’re seeking bold leaders, fearless champions to join the group that steers our waka

The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark aspires to UNESCO Global Geopark accreditation Humans might be a mere blip in the timeline of Waitaki’s 35 million year old story but we’re looking for the kind of humans who will use the lessons of our past to impact the future of our planet and its people.


We're calling for people with a passion for addressing the societal challenges we all face, who won’t be daunted by the scale of the task ahead. You will guide the creation of a sustainable economic framework which will entice businesses and newcomers, wrap success around our people, protect the things we love and allow us to tell the varied and multi-faceted stories of our geological, natural and cultural heritages, from how Maori used the land and rivers of the district, the fossilised Bryozoans used to build the whitestone buildings of Victorian Oamaru, through to modern agricultural practices and the use of water for renewable energy production.

It’s a big project, a big job.
You’ll need mana, commitment and stamina.

"What a fantastic window into the past. Today we saw fossil bones in limestone at two different sites. One set were whale bones. Just awesome that this trail has been put together, maintained and promoted."
