Ruahine Whio Supporters
A message from Janet Wilson, chair of Ruahine Whio Protection Trust:
I am getting in touch with those who bought “Wild Ruahine” calendars from us last year.
These were popular and so we have produced another one for 2023 – hoping that everyone enjoyed this year’s calendar so much that they would like to support the Ruahine Whio Protection Trust again.
Once again they are designed locally by whio protector and designer Anthony Behrens (Swampthing). All photos are donated and it is even printed in NZ by Greenlees in Masterton.
All proceeds go to support the volunteer effort in the Ruahines.
Cost is $20 + PP. They are also available at Bivouac Palmerston North for the same price. If you would like to get one for yourself or maybe a couple as gifts please contact Janet via her email email@example.com
Wilding Pine update
The next day wilding pine day is scheduled for Saturday 12 November. Usual arrangements – meet at Fernhill Cemetery at 8am to consolidate transport up to Kuripaponga; return by 3pm. Gear suitable for a bit of bush-bashing plus lunch. Saws, secateurs, hi-viz, first aid and plb will be supplied.
Please confirm if you are coming along. For those of you that are new, please complete the simple on-line registration process at www.afoot.co.nz/conservation
Labour Weekend Tramp – Sat 22-Sun 23 October
It has been decided that the tramp over Labour Weekend will not be a three-night tramp as originally planned. It has been changed to an overnighter to Rocks Ahead Hut starting from Makahu Saddle. This is due to some members only wanting to spend two days out, and the likelihood that there will be many others in the Kaweka Forest Park. The tramp registration form has been amended.
Revised Tramp List
We have updated the Tramp List. It now includes the Kaimai tramp at the end of October into November.Trip List July to December 2022 V2
