Following a very meaningful blessing ceremony with karakia for the workers and the project by local kaumatua Anaru Rangiheuea last Thursday, we are now ready to begin work on the new track, stage 1 from Boyes beach to the DOC camp and beach off Millar Road.
So the first Working Bee for the new walking track and the volunteers will be from the DOC camp and beach end, 226 Millar Road (at the end of the seal).
This is a joint Lake Okareka Community Assn and Landcare Okareka project.
WHEN: This Saturday 11th October 2014 from 9 am to 12 noon. Please park in the car park at the camp, not in the campers spaces. The area where we are working is down off the track to the jumping off rock - go to the double toilets, up the few steps, and follow the track to the left across the fallen tree. There will be some signs to follow if you are later getting there.
WHAT TO BRING: Please wear suitable clothing, strong footwear, wet weather gear (if it looks like it will rain) or sun hat and sun block, gardening gloves, a spade and grubber, secateurs, loppers - if you have them. Bring a drink and a snack - we will provide some morning tea.
Please pass this email onto any other people who you think could be interested to help with this project.
If you no longer wish to receive these emails please let me know and I will remove your name from the list.
