Planting Day at Waiatarua Reserve

23 August 2015

Waiatarua Reserve Protection Society had a planting day on Saturday 15th August.

Thanks to a team of around 40 keen diggers and planters from the Society,  Ellerslie Sunshine Rotary,  Conservation Volunteers and the local community, over 800 natives were placed, planted, and mulched.

Auckland Council assisted in providing equipment, and a much appreciated afternoon snack and juice for hungry and thirsty workers.

Yolanda Thorpe, Chair of the Society (pictured below) hopes the planting will encourage more native birds to the wetlands.
