Sunday Dec. 2nd at 9 am was our 4th visit by American tourists.
Tour guide Josh Riddell enjoys bringing his tour groups to the Springs Reserve, where they are met by HSIS volunteers. They love the walk up through the Redwoods to the Hangarua Spring platforms, before being treated to morning or afternoon tea while planting 2 native trees donated by Josh.
So this is a unique experience for the tourists who actually get to meet some local Kiwis. They also make contributions to the HSIS. On this occasion six of the visitors paid a sub. and joined the Society as International Members.
The next visit will be in Feb. 2013.
