Commitment to fostering and advocating for quality outdoor learning experiences that educate for a sustainable future 

I am involved with Outdoor Education and EOTC alongside my role as Gateway Director.
I appreciate your help, as we are a small rural school with limited resources, and a hugely promising Outdoor Education capacity within the Waitomo Caves region.  EONZ is a valuable connection for us.  The newsletters help enormously.
