Ward Island Domain Board.
Report of Representative.

The annual meeting of the Ward Island Domain Board was held on May 25th, 1933. The report for 1932 was presented, and it was decided to make arrangements for further visits to the Island for the purpose of making a path to the top and planting trees. Through the courtesy of Mr A. Holmes, who made his launch available, members of the Board visited the island on August 8th, 1933. About 75 trees were planted, including 50 provided by the Wellington City Council.

Two members of the Museum staff, Miss Heine and Miss Plank, accompanied the party and assisted in investigating the native plants and insects found on the island.
