Planting Day at Onoke Spit

On Friday June 27 we finally planted another 750 plants at the start of Onoke Spit.
Many thanks to all who turned up to help. Special mention must go to the year 5 & 6 Kahutara School children, Palliser Estate workers and of course all DoC personnel.
The weather was kind to us and the Lake stayed open so the plants were planted in just 2 hours – well done team a truly great effort.
The site is really beginning to look good now that we are four years on with our planting programme. Eventually we hope to change what was a sea of gorse into a more attractive area covered in native plants.
Hope you are able to go and visit sometime soon and admire the work and efforts so far. We’re not finished yet and hope to continue planting for a few more years yet!
