Spaces are filling up fast for accommodation at the 32nd AGM weekend of Project Tongariro.  If you have not made your booking yet, please click here to book on our website.  Bookings close on Thursday 13th October to allow final booking details to be forwarded onto the lodge and caterer.

The AGM will be held on Saturday 15th October from 3pm followed by a main meal and dessert. BYO drinks.  After dinner there will be a presentation from Thea Depetris - the [new-ish] Kids Greening Taupo Coordinator.

On the morning of Saturday (before the AGM) the group will partake in a planting day at the Rongomai Marae [with Ngati Rongomai], just northeast of Turangi, as part of the Te Matapuna Wetlands Restoration Project.  Please note the change in day from previous newsletter from the Friday 14th to Saturday 15th October.

On Sunday morning we shall car-pool around to Ohakune to visit the Mangawhero river where a new predator trapping project is underway with Ngati Rangi & DOC.  We shall walk half the trapping line (approx 2 hours) checking out the project and hearing from DOC's Senior Biodiversity Ranger Alison, and hopefully 'enticing' PT members to sign up and commit to trap checking on the southern side of Mt Ruapehu!
