We have a very special Working Bee happening on Tuesday 10th January 2017, on the new walking track at Lake Okareka, when we are hosting a group of approx. 20 international students, led by Doug Farr from Kuaka, an international educational specialist group based in Tauranga. Check them out on www.kuaka.co.nz
We would like to have some of our local volunteers also come to help on this day. It is a nice way for these young people to meet some real New Zealanders who are interested in the environment.
WHEN: Tuesday 10th January 2017 from 9 am to around 12 noon or so - Health & Safety briefing and sign in at 9 am
PARKING: at Boyes beach car park area please, and walk across the reserve to the Te Waiariki Purea Trust paddle shed.
WHAT: track building - laying textiles and gravel mainly
WHAT TO BRING: wear suitable clothing and closed footwear; sunhat and sun block; gardening gloves.
If you have any on the following please bring them as well: wheelbarrows, spades, shovels, rakes - and if you have spare tools like these, please bring them as well. Make sure that your tools are labelled/named/marked in some way so you can get them back at the end of the Working Bee.
Bring a water bottle - which you can refill - we will have a water container.
Morning tea will be provided.
Sorry - but this working bee is for adults only this time - too many things will be going on and with too many people, for children to be safe at this one.
Can you please send me an email or phone call if you are able to come, so we have some idea of numbers for morning tea? Email: email@example.com or phone: 07 362 8865
