What is HutReno?
HutReno is a volunteer service that brings together like-minded individuals, professional organisational planning and individuals’ practical skills for the purpose of renovating backcountry huts throughout New Zealand. It must be noted that all HutReno projects are subject to DOC’s requirements, protocols and their discretion.
‘Being around ingenuous, conscientious, strategic, humorous and philosophically enlightened individuals is inspiring. The maker (DOC Ranger Duncan Anthony) of this letterbox is one of them.’
HutReno is a not-for-profit Organisation
HutReno prepares behind the scenes logistics. We liaise with DOC in order to link up with the required projects for all parties involved. When this involves working with other backcountry service providers, then better the strength of many than the efforts of one!
What is a HutReno Project Profile?
A Project Profile provides details of a completed HutReno project once the adequate number of volunteers have registered their interest. A Project Profile will detail a range of important matters for volunteers to be fully informed ahead of time. The development of a HutReno App for communicating any Project Profile updates is being considered.
What is a HutReno Project Calendar?
A Project Calendar comprises possible up and coming HutReno backcountry project/s that are being discussed with DOC.
HutReno is a volunteer service for individuals who have a passion for the great outdoors and are interested in its conservation and who love a motivational challenge. HutReno helps preserve the life, legacy, and comfort of New Zealand’s backcountry huts.
HutReno validates each volunteer’s commitment to the core of conservation efforts and holds to scientific evidence-based practice to conservation efforts throughout New Zealand.
