Bushman Walks with ‘Sam the Trap Man’ – Hunter Gatherers

May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Aotea Ecology Vision is bringing Tairāwhiti Gisborne’s hunter and conservationist Hamiora Gibson to Aotea. Join Sam on one of a series of walks on Aotea when he will share his bush knowledge, including on edible plants and foraging tips, as well as the role many plants and animals play in our natural environment.

Description: Sam is a keen hunter gatherer. After his first visit to Aotea last year for the EcoFest, he shared a desire to catch up with locals who have similar interests and what he has learnt to look out for when out hunting over the years that just might make a difference on the next hunt. This walk will not just be for hunters though, rather anyone who loves to explore the bush, forage, hike or just wants to learn a whole heap about Aotea’s unique bush landscape is welcome. Hunting will be a focus topic for discussion as will mahinga kai.

Followed by a beverage with Sam.

Pick up & drop off available along the main trunk from Okiwi South
