Torohē Nuku (Explore Nature)
An experience beyond the lit-up boundaries of our human world. The night walk, led by Annette Lees, explores themes in her book, After Dark: Walking into the nights of Aotearoa. She will walk us into the dark, sharing ecological and human tales of the night. We will explore our relationship to darkness, using our night-altered powers of observation. We will return to the Ecohub for hot drinks.
This walk will take place in darkness to allow us to experience the true night. We will provide soft red torchlight. If you have a red-light torch you are welcome to bring it as a personal backup. We’d ask that you Not use Non-red torches Nor your phones. Bring warm clothes and sturdy footwear. The evening is unsuitable for children aged under 10.
