WAEWAETOTARA PLANTING, NEW DATE TUESDAY 21 JULY

Posted 11 years, 6 months ago    3 comments

This update has just come through from Rod Brown, setting a new date for the Waewaetotara planting expedition.

Hallo all,

Project Island Song – restoring the biodiversity of the eastern B.O.I. Waewaetorea Planting - rescheduled for Tuesday 21 July

 All who are able to come would be most welcome. The plants which will have been on the island since 12 July will be very pleased to see you. The plan is to plant about 1450 native plants in a small catchment facing Okahu passage.  This is the 6th year of planting and will add to the 6600 plants of previous years.

Fullers have again very generously offered their large catamaran for transport at no charge and we will be ferried ashore at the island by DOC’s barge.

The boat will leave Paihia wharf at 0930 sharp. Please be there by 0910. Return trip will leave the island at 3pm with ETA Paihia 3.30 pm approx. The boat will call at Russell if required.

Please advise me if you intend to embark at Russell.

Bring clean (and sharp) spade, lunch, water, towel, and waterproof jacket. Boots and spades must be clean to avoid spreading weeds and muddying the boat. Take a plastic bag to cover your spade for transport Bring a change of footwear for the passage home to avoid dirtying Fuller’s vessel

 A reasonable level of fitness is required as some of the terrain is steep and carrying plants is involved. We are expecting fine weather but it is essential that you contact Rod Brown, preferably by email, in case the planting day has to be postponed because of the weather or any other reason.
