The Forest Comes Alive at Night

Aongatete Forest

Aongatete Forest is “Alive” at night. Wetas, spiders and glow worms all come out to feed and play when it gets dark. Come and learn about the fascinating invertebrate life in the forest.

This event is part of Conservation Week 2017 –

Assemble at the carpark where we will meet local entomologist, Dr Peter Maddison. Bring a torch for each participant to help find the night loving forest inhabitants. Learn more about their habits. Wear warm clothing and sensible footwear, bring spare batteries.

We will move into the bush while it is still light for safety reasons. The track is easy but undulating and a reasonable standard of fitness is required. A warm drink will be available at the end of the walk. Please check our website for any cancellation messages.

Suitable for families with older children 10 yrs+
Interested adults welcome. Numbers strictly limited to 20.
