First of all a huge thank you to everyone who helped with the Lake Okareka Walking Track working bee last week when we had some USA students come and help. Organiser of the students, Doug Farr from Tauranga, was absolutely delighted with the interaction that went on between the Landcare Okareka volunteers and the Northern Michigan University students and their teachers. Thank you also to the fantastic ladies (Pat McKenna and Frankie Blakely) for their home baking - which was most appreciated by everyone - and thanks to Pat McKenna and Jenny Grace for helping serve morning tea, washing dishes, etc.
WORKING BEE AFTER WORK - TUESDAY 17th January 2017
Once again it will be laying textiles and then gravel over the top, using the tractor and trailer to cart and spread the gravel.
Please park at the Boyes beach car park and walk across the reserve towards where the Te Waiariki Purea Trust paddle shed and the large gravel heap is located.
Please wear suitable clothing and strong closed toes foot wear. Bring gardening gloves, a shovel and a rake (if you have them). Please also bring a drink and a snack, if you think you might get hungry/thirsty.
Looking at the weather forecast, the weather should hopefully be okay for Wednesday afternoon/early evening - rain maybe later in the evening.
