Thank you so much to everyone who came and helped with planting at the DOC camp and beach area off Millar Road and also for the previous scheduled Landcare Okareka Working Bee down near the shade structure on Lake Okareka walkway. Some of the LO volunteers had been dab chick counting, before coming to help plant so those people had a very busy morning!
NB: Don't forget to be watching "Country Calendar" programme on TV 1 at 7.00 pm on Saturday 28th September.....
THIS MONTH'S WORKING BEE: Saturday 28th September 2013
This will be a combined Landcare Okareka, Rotorua branch of Forest & Bird and Rotorua Botanical Society Working Bee.
We begin at the DOC reserve at Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake), over near the F&B Nature Walk - we have about 50 plants to infill.
Then we will come back to the area of Lake Tikitapu Scenic Reserve in the Okareka settlement area, Lake Okareka Loop Road, opposite the fire station andadjacent to the F&B Mistletoe walk, to plant more mistletoe host plants (five finger, Pseudopanax arboreus provided by Rotorua F&B) and other re-vegetation species.
WHAT TO BRING: warm clothes (bring rain gear just in case!), strong footwear, gardening gloves, planting spade.
We will provide drinking water and the makings of morning tea to enjoy together.
Let's hope the America's cup yacht racing will be over by then - with a positive result for Team NZ!
