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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Wilding pine update, 12 November
Graham Leech reports: We dodged the weather and in fact sunburn was a higher risk than the rain. Nine of us got well into the work and tallied 1700 in the end – mainly on the lower eastern faces by the second smaller lake. Thanks Giles, Russell and John, and the five students doing voluntary service for their Duke of Edinburgh Award (Jack and Angus from Hastings Boys and Joe, Jack and Thomas from Lindisfarne).
DoC is talking to us about a new block – Kohinga (not far from The Lakes, just south-west across the road) – they have recognised the progress we have made at The Lakes (and whilst that job will never be actually “finished”) it does feel like we are close to throwing our efforts wider (gulp!).
Our next day is Tuesday 20 December.
