NZ forces lend a hand

Wanganui Chronicle - - Front Page -

The New Zealand De­fence Force has paired with the Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion to sur­vey avalanche risks in Nel­son. The Air Force has helped re­move two tonnes of un­used wooden tracks from the Nel­son Lakes Na­tional Park. He­li­copters have also lifted in nine tonnes of gravel for DoC to cre­ate walk­ing tracks. DoC Senior Ranger Phil Craw­ford says the help has meant they’ve achieved some­thing they haven’t been able to do for years.
