Upcoming Events: Trips

Apr 2021
Sat 24th Purangi - East Taranaki Easy/Medium
This Anzac Weekend trip is a little treat, more so if you are a bird lover. We will be based at Purangi approx 40km to the east of Inglewood. This is the home of the East Taranaki Environment trust who look after a thriving kiwi population and some recently released Kokako. While exploring the nearby area we will also be helping put out some new traps – nothing too difficult I am told and many hands make light work! From the Trust’s website - “We provide a place for kiwi to thrive. Our project at P?rangi, East Taranaki is a community initiative, involving the implementation of a suite of pest control and advocacy measures to promote conservation and sustainability in the P?rangi / Matau and Pouiatoa catchments. Kiwi is our indicator species. We have around 13,000 hectares of land within the project area, which is home to over 4000 kiwi. We are proud to be one of the largest community environment schemes in New Zealand. This is an area of significant habitat of nationally threatened and at risk indigenous species”. Accommodation is in a comfortable cabin. Travel up on Saturday 24th unless we are all keen for a Friday departure.

Sat 1st - Sun 2nd Tukino Fit/Technical
Meet at Tukino Road 2wd car park (Eastern side of Ruapehu) at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. Drive to the top of the road and walk up to Wangaehu Hut where we will stay the night (fees apply). We can leave our overnight gear at the hut and climb further up the mountain. If anyone is keen, we could do some rock scrambling on steeper rock with a rope - or stick to the easier stuff if you prefer. May need crampons if there’s been some early snow.
