Wairoa Stream: Public planting Sunday, 9 June 2019

May 23, 2019

We have recently had a further 70 metres of riverbank cleared of weeds and ageing eucalyptus trees (see images below) and now Vision Kerikeri and Friends of the Wairoa Stream are inviting you to come along and help us to plant the more than 900 native plants that we have for this new extension of the Wairoa Stream walkway and wildlife corridor.

 

We have also removed a large clump of bamboo from the area planted in 2017 and will be plant this in natives.

 

The planting is scheduled for Sunday, 9 June 2019 starting at 9am. We will meet at the 'carpark' by the Cobham Rd bridge over the stream (69 Cobham Road).

 

Bring a sharp spade and wear boots, gumboots or strong footwear. Dress for the conditions.

 

These plants have been funded by Matariki Tu Rakau which supports communities

around New Zealand to plant trees together, creating living memorials to fallen and

returned servicemen and women 100 years after the First World War. Part of the One

Billion Trees Programme. Light refreshments will be provided. To help us gauge numbers can you email Rod Brown if you are going to be there: summerhouse.kerikeri@gmail.com

 

Areas ready for planting

 This is what the area looked like back in January (above) and last week following removal of the weeds and eucalyptus trees(below)

This scheduled planting will add to the 11,300 plants already planted along the stream. You can view the planting activity along the stream on the Google interactive map displayed below. Click the symbol to the right of the map header to view a full screen interactive map.
