Waiwhakarekeke Natural Heritage Park planting morning

Saturday 30 July 2016

9am - midday

Meet in the car park on Brymer Road opposite the zoo.

Please RSVP by the end of Monday 25 June if you are intending to come along. It is really important to have an indication of numbers so that we know how many plants to have on site. We hope to be able to put 500 plants in the ground so we need a really good turn-out.

Bring a spade and gloves and wear study foot wear, warm clothes and wet weather gear if rain is forecast. Pop your gumboots in the car just in case some of us will be in wetter areas, and bring morning tea!

We’ll be asking you to sign in as you arrive as an H&S requirement. The sign-in will require your contact details and your next of kin contact details.
