There will also be working bees to plant some new trees around the mistletoe area and to infill gaps near the start of the Nature Walk. These working bees are ideal for people who are no longer able to manage going up and down the bait lines.
We would be delighted to have some more Okareka residents assisting with this project which benefits the local community. If you would be interested in helping please contact Frances and James Blakely on 3628 480 or email@example.com.
