Russell Nature Walks - Ecology Walk - walk 18.

Great for all ages! Enjoy a relaxed, informative walk in a Private Forest and Kiwi Conservation Area. Get close to our rare Weka. See or hear other birds like tui, warblers, fantails & fernbirds. Learn about native plants and their uses. Hunt for Weta (the gentle giants of the insect world). Understand the conservation challenges facing native wildlife and what we are doing to protect it.

This walk is run by Russell Nature Walks and takes you onto their private land with their incredibly qualified guides Lisette and Eion.

We specialise in small groups (maximum 8) so you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, and get up close to nature!

The track has an easy grade and is suitable for most fitness levels but is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. Maximum 8 people, family friendly.

It a pleasant 2.5km walk out to the start of the Ecology Walk which is only about 1km long but takes about 2 to 2.5hrs to complete. So total walking time is approximately 3 to 3.5 hours. Walkers will be transported back to town.
