Pukaha News

This Easter, it's all about Eggs!

At Pukaha Mount Bruce this Easter, it's about Eggs, Eggs, Eggs.

Together with our supporters at Henergy, we’re celebrating all things eggs.  From Good Friday to Easter Monday (18 – 21 April) we’re having some egg-cellent activities in the reserve. 

Come along and see if you can tell a kaka egg from a hihi egg, run in the Henergy egg & spoon race and help us find the golden moa egg hidden in the park!   If you do find the hidden egg, bring it to reception to claim your prize.

Interested in volunteering with the team at Pukaha?

If you are fairly fit and bush savvy, then we would be keen to talk to you about volunteering with our restoration team one day a fortnight.

With 942 hectares of unfenced bush,  we need people to help us set and clear predator traps in the reserve.  So if you are not too squeamish and have a day a fortnight to spare, we'd love to hear from you.

Full training and most equipment is provided.

Contact General Manager, Helen Tickner on 06 375 8756 or email helen@pukaha.org.nz for more details.

Paintings at Pukaha

18 well known artists have created an exhibition of Native Bird paintings which are now on display in the Visitor Centre at Pukaha Mount Bruce until 22 June 2014.

The idea for the exhibition came from local artist, Viv Walker, who has a close affinity to Pukaha Mount Bruce having illustrated two books about the centre, The Eels of Anzac Bridge and Elwyn’s Dream, written by Ali Foster.
