Last summer the Tararua Tramping Club got free paint for the roof of their lodge, on the northern slopes of Mount Ruapehu, thanks to the Department of Conservation and Dulux New Zealand Community Contribution scheme.
Any hut or asset on public conservation land, that is available for public use, is eligible to apply for free paint under the scheme, which is part our Protecting Our Place partnership with Dulux.
We’d love to see more communities and clubs take advantage of the Community Contribution scheme. You could be eligible to get free paint for your project. Find out more on the Protecting Our Place website.
The Department of Conservation and Dulux New Zealand have a three-year partnership to paint and protect DOC huts and other recreation and historic assets, and to support the Kea Conservation Trust.
