The Club has a partnership with the Department of Conservation (DOC) to operate a predator trapping line in part of the Greenstone valley and Steele Creek Valleys.

The Trap Line needs to be checked and rebaited regularly and this event notification is to seek volunteers to undertake the next round of trap monitoring.

We will be installing fake chicken Eggs and rebaiting with Erayz Rabbit Jerky (no poisons) so pretty straight forward.

Walk in and out only - no heli flights sorry.

This will involve standard rechecks and rebaiting of the single and double DOC200 box traps.  

While we only need to check the entire line once in February if we are able to get multiple groups to do this say each week over February we should get a high hit rate. 

We will also need to conduct a couple of 5 minute bird call counts over this time frame, so if you are able to undertake this then let us know and if you can train others then please contact Dave. 

There will be a more intensive trapping and working bee operation for the 1-10 April if you are keen as well.  See the other club Events.

No hunting sorry apart from leg hold possum trapping which you can do while there. 

You can stay in the club hut for free with a guaranteed bed or at the Steele creek bivvy on a first come first served basis as it is an open backcountry hut.

It is also the Greenstone Controlled Fishery - Beat Three - open season so you can arrange your controlled fishing booking with fish and game while you are there.
