    Hi! I am a student at university. I am very very interested in those field trips! Can you please tell me where to register for this event? And when and where to meet up? Thank you~

      Hi there. For the Kepa Bush field trips, meet at the end of Colenso Place (off Kepa Road) just before the time indicated as this is the access point to Kepa Bush. If you happen to be in the Base Camp marquee, someone will give you directions or walk over with you.
      For the Pourewa Reserve field trips, meet at the information desk in the Base Camp marquee … this will be on the flat ground below and just to the left of the St Heliers pony club building (also off Kepa Road).

      Looking forward to seeing you there!
