Living Legends is a community conservation project and a joint venture between Project Crimson and The Tindall Foundation. Living Legends is planting 170,000 native trees throughout New Zealand, honouring our Rugby Legends and leaving a legacy of New Zealand’s hosting of Rugby World Cup 2011.
Our Rugby Legends have joined thousands of Kiwis to plant 129,140 trees so far at our “Great Living Legends Muck Ins” in 2011 and 2012. We’re returning in 2013 to plant more native trees so come and join us!
Project Crimson has a particular focus on schools events as part of the Living Legends programme. In 2013 planting events specifically designed for schools will take place in North Harbour, Waikato, Hawke's Bay, Wellington, Canterbury and Southland.
The Living Legends project is only possible with the support or our partners and sponsors. As well as the generous support given by the Tindall Foundation, Living Legends is also supported by major sponsors the Department of Conservation and Meridian Energy. The events are also supported by many local community groups who are actively involved on planting days, and as tree caretakers throughout the year.
All of the organisations involved share a commitment to looking after the environment and investing in local communities to create a legacy of beautiful places in New Zealand, for generations to come.
