October 2020 – Lake Ōhau fire

With the Lake Ōhau fire and its aftermath, the Trust wont be holding work sessions for the foreseeable future. We’ll provides updates here and directly to Trust supporters via our email list.

Our thoughts are with everyone who has suffered loss from the fire.

The Trust’s gear container was untouched by the fire – so we have tools and resources for future work. We’ll work with the Department of Conservation about what that work might be. We’re committed to helping how we can, to bring back some “nature” to the Ōhau Basin, so those living there will again have special natural places to go as the people and the environment heals.

If you would like to contribute to this….please make a donation to the Trust. Our bank account number is: 06-0966-0125223-00 

You can make a donation directly to this account. If you then use the Contact Us form to let is know your email address – we can send you a receipt for tax purposes.

Thank you to those that have already been in contact with messages of support and who have made donations.
