    Apart from some finishing touches to be completed, the deck, kitchen and water supply are ready for our first multiday course which started Monday. We are so grateful to all those that funded & volunteered time to make this stage of the renovation project happen! We couldn't have done it without your help :)

    The Eco lodge is busy now with schools & community groups as spring arrives and we gear back up in to running outdoor courses. Pupils from local Timaru school are a five day outdoor adventure and left this morning for a overnight rafting trip down Wamiakariri - lucky them! Hopefully they bring back some photos of their awesome adventure to share

    We do hope to have a open day soon and share our vision for the next renovation phases and our environmental education plan for the future.... keep watching for updates.

    We have now started the kitchen renovations at the Eco Lodge with the old kitchen been removed.

    The new layout and kitchen is due to be fitted by the end of July and will include a gas oven & hob and a low energy large fridge.

    The water pipes have been laid through the native QEII block from the new water tank site to the Lodge and cabins. We are waiting on delivery of the new water tanks before connecting the new system up.

    New timber to replace the decking has been purchased & delivered and we are hoping that the settled weather will continue for our volunteers to build the new deck this month.

    We are so grateful for all the generous donations that have been received!

    Exciting happens at the Eco Lodge ! Work has started on the water supply upgrades with digger on site last week and 300 metres of piping laid.

    We are so grateful to the Proutings of Village Landscapes for the generous digger support and Alterno Foundation for their donation.

    We'll keep posting updates as we progress the renovations work.

    If you would like to help, we have a working bee this Saturday 4th May - check out the event on FB - pizza lunch supplied. Email us on funding@peelforestoutdoors.org.nz if you can join us & we'll make you a pizza!
