There will also be two planting working bees which are ideal for people who are no longer able to manage going up and down the bait lines.
Saturday 22nd August, a combined working bee with Forest and Bird, Rotorua Botanical Society and Landcare Okareka to plant opposite the start of Benn Rd, in behind the area planted several years ago. Sunday 6th September, assisting Kiwi Conservation Club to extend their planted area at Hamurana.
Bird counts will be repeated in November.
We would be delighted to have some new volunteers join us for these projects. Our working bees start at 9am and we expect to be finished by 12 noon. Reasonable fitness is required.
