This will be a joint trip run by BSO and Forest and Bird. We plan to stay at the Naseby Campground. There are a variety of cabins and campsites available. People are responsible for making their own arrangements and we suggest you book early. Note: this is a change of venue to that advertised in the May newsletter (DOC Homestead Camp Site, Hawkdun Runs Road). Staying at Naseby will give us more options especially if the weather is bad. Options for day trips are are Mt Buster Road, and/or Little Kyeburn Track, Mt Kyeburn/Timber Creek Track from the Danseys Pass road and Upper Manuherikia Tracks. The vegetation of the Oteake Conservation Park is diverse and very interesting especially in the alpine zone. There are well-developed screes which have their own specialised flora and a number of species reach their southern limit in the region. Final details well depend on the number of people attending and the number of 4WD vehicles available. If you wish to go on this trip please contact David Lyttle (03) 454 5470 email djl1yttle@gmail.com
