Help restore Alpha hut

$1,485 of $7,000 goal
Given by 28 generous donors in around 3 months

Restore Alpha hut on the Tararua Southern Crossing.

The Greater Wellington Backcountry Network (GWBN) is a charitable society that has a key object

to foster backcountry recreation within the Tararua, Aorangi and Remutaka forest parks

through maintaining and building huts and tracks.

Tararua Forest Park is the major wilderness area in the lower region and it is a key objective of the GWBN to encourage recreation so that more visitors connect with our natural heritage and gain an appreciation of the need for the protection and preservation of the environment.

Alpha is the key hut project for our volunteers this comming summer. The hut is a key destination on the well know Southern Crossing and is over due to maintenance due to deterioation of several areas of the hut that need to be fixed before even more funds are needed for repairs.

About us

we encourage recreational use in local forest parks by maintaining tracks and huts, fostering volunteer participation in track and hut upkeep

Use of funds

Repairs to roofing, exterior cladding, leaks, unsafe fixtures. Will include transport of material by helicopter and building materials.
