Eco-Race at the Rocks Estate

Seventy five people entered the Eco-race facilitated by Untamed Adventure. The adventure race had an eco-twist to it. Here at the Rocks we heat with wood from our sustainable woodlands. Our forester selects trees that are to be cut from the 1300 acres of woodland and staff as well as volunteers help process the fire wood ready for winter. This year the 75 contestants in the eco-race moved and stacked 3,500 pieces of firewood for the us. What a great help, 3,500 pieces of wood moved in 1 hour and 45 minutes using no powered equipment. This save the conservation organization a substantial amount of labor and fuel.
