Benefits of TASC Membership

Tukino is a very special place on the eastern side of Mount Ruapehu.  It is within the World Heritage Tongariro National Park and provides a unique wilderness experience with extremes of weather, breathtaking views and a fascinating volcanic alpine environment with huge potential for education, training, alpine sports and research.  Being a member of TASC is about being part of a team who care for Tukino and ensure that the place is cared for in keeping with its World Heritage and Conservation status, rich Māori and European history.  Be part of something worthwhile and have fun at the same time!
