A trip is proposed to Hinewai Reserve (www.hinewai.org.nz) on the Banks Peninsula. This 1250 hectare reserve is privately owned and manged by the Maurice White Native Forest Trust, but freely open the public on foot. A limit amount of collecting should be possible and will not require a permit – see “Collecting in New Zealand”. Further details to follow.
Other trips will depend on numbers and may include a scenic trip to Arthurs Pass.
