1. Latest and forthcoming sessions & welcome to our new student Alessa!

We started our autumn baiting round last Thursday. This week, there will be a volunteer session on Thursday, the 13th of April only, meeting 8:30am at the ranger station. It is time for our bimonthly seed collection again.

Seed collection is a nationwide project. The Department of Conservation, in partnership with Landcare Research and the University of Canterbury, are monitoring the production of fruit and seed by New Zealand forest species in a wide range of sites and forest types across the country. The Ark is one of 57 sites in the national seedfall monitoring network.
