Events for 2017 are listed below.
Supporters’ weekends are a wonderful way to get to know the Island better and to take an active role in Tiritiri Matangi.
Supporters’ hosted weekends will be hosted by two guides and will include the opportunity to do a night walk and listen to the dawn chorus. The guides can also give you advice on where to go for that bird you haven’t yet seen and you will have the chance to help fill the feeders and water troughs. Supporters, their families and their friends (if they are happy to join up) are all welcome. As a Supporter you pay half the usual price ($15 adult, $10 children) for the bunkhouse.
360 Discovery has kindly provided a special rate for the Supporters’ weekends.
Working weekends are an opportunity for supporters to contribute to important tasks on the Island. There is always great camaraderie in the bunkhouse, with shared pot-luck meals and a satisfying sense of achievement.
Enquiries and bookings for the weekends and special events should be made to Mary-Ann Rowland by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phoning 09 476 001009 476 0010 between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
Join us at an evening talk
Every year we run several evening talks for our Supporters. These cover a range of topics, from Tiritiri Matangi’s history to our plants and birds. Our guides love these seminars for their information and for the opportunity to mix and mingle with other Supporters
Please feel free to come and listen – bring a cup for juice or a hot drink after the speaker, as we’re trying to reduce our environmental impact. To attend you must be a financial supporter or join up on the night.
*The specialist ornithological and photographic walks on Tiritiri are for no more than 8 (or no less than 4) in a group and will be guided by an expert in that field. They are $25 and must be booked through Mary-Ann email@example.com
Please note that (except where an alternative is listed below) evening talks take place in Building 115 at Unitec. You can view directions and a map by clicking here..
