Volunteers - Otanewainuku

In or out of the Bush

Volunteers are the life blood of the Trust.

There is a broad mix of outside activities, from stoat trapping to cooking the sausages at get-togethers.  Some tasks do require specialist training.  Many things can be done from home such as publicity and education.  Your assistance can be on-going or a one-off. Do let us know what skills you have.
