  • A new mountain has been named in Arthur's Pass National Park. Mt Foweraker at 1804m is situated between the Dome and The Pyramid in the Sudden Valley area (E1493767 N5241310). It is named after Charles Foweraker, a lecturer in charge of Canterbury University's first Forestry School. Foweraker was a senior lecturer in botany and forestry and spent his working career from 1914 to 1951 at Canterbury College, now the University of Canterbury. He was a major user of the Cass field station and wider area during his working career. The mountain peak is the most prominent mountain peak when looking north-west from the field station towards Arthur's Pass National Park.
