Miranda Publications

The Miranda Naturalists’  Tust News is the main publication of the organisation.  The New Zealand Wader Study Group News is also published through the Trust.  Issues of MNT News will be placed on the internet about six months after publication.  They are in a .pdf format which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to read.  If you do not have this program it can be found here.

Miranda Naturalist’s Trust News is published 4 times a year, typically in February, May, August and November.  If you have any questions please contact the editor Jim Eagles.
