Come to the BIG DIG!!

Grab a spade and gumboots, jump on the bus, bring your mates and come help plant 30000 plants!

Massive planting project at Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park.
This is an invitation to you or your organisation to come and join us and 3000 others plant 30000 native plants for the “BIG DIG”!

At  Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park, Brymer Road (opposite Hamilton Zoo)
Why: to plant 30,000 native plants to help this restoration project with 3000 people! (see link www.waiwhakareke.co.nz)

 HCC is providing buses for participants at strategic locations throughout the city. Caro St, (by HCC building), Ruakura Innovation Park, WINTEC City Campus, University Campus (on campus outside shops), Landcare Research/NIWA Silverdale Rd, Dinsdale shops Whatawhata Rd and outside Bunnings Te Rapa Rd.

Attached is an aerial location map showing details of where we meet and some information relating to the site.

If you or your group are interested in attending please register them for the day (this will allow us to see how we are going with numbers expected) Contact parksandgardens@hcc.govt.nz (not the Environment Centre!)

 On the day participants will need to bring;
- Planting Spade (large enough to dig a hole to plant a PB3 sized native plant)
- Sturdy footwear (e.g. gumboots + bag to put them in - saves the buses etc getting muddy!)
- Raincoat (The event will proceed if raining, unless a HEAVY RAIN WARNING is issued, please check weather and radio cancellation notices, HCC website on the day)
- Optional, old clothes (it could be wet and muddy!
