DOC are seeking volunteers for Stage 2 of the Rimutaka trap deployment. They installed more than 200 traps on the last trip but have another 250 to go!
The plan is to improve efficiency using helicopters. The core of the deployment will cover 2 days, using helicopters on the first day to get teams to the top of the range. Accomodation is being sorted currently but likely to be Landcare Base. DOC’s goal is to get 27 people working in teams of 5, so as to speed up the track clearance component of the work.
DOC are looking for keen people who are comfortable on steep ground and a long days work. Proposed dates are:
OPTION 1: Saturday and Sunday, June 17-18
OPTION 2: Saturday and Sunday July 15-16
If you are interested, email chiefguide@ asap with your date availability.
