Description

Hi Explorers

This is going to be a fantastic opportunity for us to learn from the Polehill trust about the work they have done to encourage and support our native birds to live and breed outside Zealandia. We will learn about the kaitiaki work being done, from trapping, planting and about the unique wildlife this supports. We will also walk through the Polehill reserve and hopefully get a chance to see and hear some of the native birds living outside Zealandia.

If we are lucky we will also get to hear from some of the team who have worked in the kokako translocation and specialists who have led kiwi and kakapo recovery programme.

This event has an early morning start so that we can have the best chance of seeing and hearing the birds at Polhill. Please don't be late, we will meet at George Denton Park, at 8.30am for a talk and walk through the bush. (Directions are below)

A donation is requested from each family who attend this event, so that we can support Polhill and the work they do.

Check out this link for more information about Polhill Restoration Trust and the amazing work they do. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/Polhill/)

Directions to George Denton playground, at the end of Highbury Road (if you plug '80 Highbury Rd' into a map app that will take you there). It's at the Highbury entrance to Polhill – if you're coming from town come up Aro St; if you're coming from the northern suburbs it's off Raroa Rd around the back of Kelburn.

Thanks
