Everyone is invited to attend the opening of the Arthur’s Pass kea information shelter and citizen science project. We will celebrate kea – our precious iconic bird – by having a local mid-winter gathering! This has been a community project initiated by the Arthur’s Pass Kea Team in partnership with DOC, Kea Conservation Trust, the Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust with huge time and effort from many volunteers and sponsors.
Official opening at 3pm at the kea shelter opposite the DOC visitor centre, Arthur’s Pass Village.
Tea and cake will be provided afterwards at the Community Centre (end of School Road) with a BYO BBQ and drinks to follow.
There will be an opportunity to try out the new online sightings database for the first time so you can enter in all your kea sightings.
More information on the project can be found at https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/keacitizenscience
Let’s make this event something to remember and really celebrate our most charismatic local bird!
Please circulate this widely and invite as many people as you like. See you there!
