Tongariro Natural History Society, New Zealand Volunteer Information
Being a long term volunteer with TNHS enables you to get involved with a variety of different activities. Apart from your main project you also get involved with the regular member activities of the society such as broom pulling, seedling collections and planting. This is always a good opportunity to interact with the members and update them on what it is you are doing and how things are going with the long term projects.
