Our annual Breakfast with the Birds event is moving to April. Besides the usual “Walk with the Weta” and “Dawn Chorus”, this year a “Foray with the Fungus” will follow breakfast.
Experiencing the intensity of the New Zealand bush at night then waking up to hear native birds in a rousing dawn chorus – this sounds like the kind of adventure few people get to experience. However, for one night only in April, anyone can enjoy such an encounter, led by scientists and environmentalists.
The event is hosted in the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park by the Aongatete Forest Project in the Aongatete Outdoor Education Centre, at the top of Wright Road in Aongatete.
Breakfast With The Birds actually begins at night, with a forest walk where the wonders of the New Zealand bush are illuminated by both torches and science.
The event is just $40 a head and includes dinner, accommodation, guided walks and – of course – breakfast. Children over eight years old are welcome.
