Our Perambulators' October ramble on Sunday 13th October will be to visit again the Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre at 562 Moores Valley Rd, Wainuiomata, meeting at 9.30 in the carpark beside the main buildings.  A chance to experience the wilderness of the Scouts property (5ha bigger than Zealandia) and also for those keen on our Predator Free waterfront initiative to take a close look at Brookfield’s Predator Free project which has been going for several months and is already at 200 kills.

 

Warwick proposes a different route from our last Perambulator hike - we’ll start with a 30 -40 min walk on the shorter route to Lock Hut which does include a short uphill climb. We’ll stop at Lock Hut for morning tea and to view the completed hut which was under construction last time the Perambulators visited. Following we have several choices of return tracks / routes heading out beyond Lock Hut including possibly experiencing a trapping line – about a further 40mins to an hour, or for those looking for a decent hike a 2hr circuit tramp over the Cameron and Crowther Tracks. Those who are time challenged could return directly to their car from Lock.  

 

There is a day charge for being at Brookfield but Warwick suggests in lieu we contribute a couple of dollars each to purchase of a box trap or two.
