First of all thank you to everyone who came and helped at last month's Working Bee trimming along the plantings beside the drain along Lake Okareka Loop Road, especially in the area of the first bus stop. But also trimming plantings up at the entrance to the Lake Okareka Walkway and between the Walkway car park and Playne's Longford farm entrance. Thank you also to those who helped spread mulch around at the pump station plantings. And a big thank you to Mark Paget and RDC for paying for the hire of the mulching machine!
Another thank you from David and Karen Walmsley to all of the people from Landcare Okareka who went to help with the DOC planting at the start of the Tarawera Trail, at very short notice! Great work - and I hope you spotted yourself in the photo that went into the paper the week after the planting.
