Deep Cove  “Working Bee”

The club is looking to do another service trip to Deep Cove to assist the Deep Cove Outdoor Education Trust to tidy up before the schools start visiting in 2022.

The date to mark in your diary is:  January 28 and 29, 2022.


The Rotary Club of Invercargill has a long association with the Deep Cove Outdoor Education Trust.
The trust, a non-profit organisation was formed in 1971 to promote and educate tourists and school aged children on conservation and environmental practices in the Fiordland National Park.
The Rotary Club completes work at the Cove as part of our statement for service.
The Deep Cove Education Trust's website has a wealth of information of how the trust was set up and how it operates today. It is worth checking out, but here are some hyperlinks from the trust's website about the some of the more interesting historic facts and stories on Doubtful Sound.
