Friday night - Tonight - Junats meeting
This week’s meeting is Science: Your Rewarding Future. Dr Jacqueline Rowarth, University of Waikato will tell us about the wide range of sciences that students can do at university. This is a good opportunity for Junats to find out how they can turn their particular interest in science into a fun career.
Down at the Hort Centre at Hamilton Gardens at 7pm. Gate 2.

Sunday 11th August
Forest and Bird Soc WALK - Waiorongomai

The intention is to climb to the New Find stope above the former Quartzville settlement and then follow the tramline to its terminus at Premier Creek, but the weather may determine what we can do; either way we’ll be exploring an old goldfield (so torches needed).

Leave Hamilton at 8.00am and drive to Te Aroha, where at war memorial in centre of town turn right and drive past domain to second road on left out of town. Meet at carpark at end of this road and be ready to start walking at 9.00. Steady uphill track, climbing to about 600 metres above sea level. Fascinating historical area, suitable for fit children aged 8 and above.
