Conservation Education Day. 30 April 2023, Ardmore School 9-12pm.
CANCELLED: Ardmore Bait and Trap Day
Kia ora team,
In light of incoming weather systems, we’ve decided to cancel this event.
You can instead find us at the Clevedon District Centre on:
23 May, 4.30pm – 6.30pm
18 June, 9am – 12pm
If these dates don’t suit, or your need for gear is a little more urgent, please send an email to email@example.com and we’ll get you sorted.
Kia ora trappers!
We are back outside Ardmore School on Sunday 30th April, from 9am – 12pm, with our pest education (bait and trap) day. We’ll be onsite to help you with materials and advice to get you started on your pest control journey.
Experts from Friends of Te Wairoa will be available on the day to give advice and support on various conservation topics, including planting and pest control. There will also be the usual pest control materials available to take away.
Our funding is thanks to a number of sources which a small group of people apply for with incredible dedication annually. We are competing with other groups in New Zealand for these funds, who all carry out incredible mahi. Due to high demand from the community, we continue to ask for help in paying it forward by giving a donation. This may help us fund the shortfall that happens as demand for our support continues to increase and inflation kicks in.
As an indication of the approximate cost of pest control materials:
- 10kg Pestoff costs $47.70
- A white Philproof bait station costs $11.80
- A black Pied Piper bait station costs $16.77
- A Flipping Timmy possum trap costs $51.20
And these prices are WITHOUT GST!
If you would like to help us keep moving forward, donations can be made to:
Te Ara Hīkoi Trust
If you do make a donation over $5.00 you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a tax invoice. We are also open to accepting cash donations on the day.
Any donations (gratefully received) will be used entirely in the purchase of further pest control materials to aid those less able to afford their own. By giving out pest control materials our aim is to reduce the barriers between landowners and effective, consistent pest control – cost being one of them.
We are excited to have Tāwhiti Traps ready for sale via the Predator Free Franklin website. Talk to us about how they work at the pest education day.
We also welcome any returned materials, or donations of new or second-hand pest control materials. If you took too much bait, or don’t feel confident setting a trap that you took home, we would love to see it back no questions asked. These resources are best used in the community rather than collecting cobwebs in a shed. Email email@example.com to get these back to us.
Finally, we’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support of the mahi we do. It’s what keeps the ball rolling forward.
From the team at Friends of Te Wairoa, Te Ara Hīkoi and Predator Free Franklin
