Another working bee day is coming up in I’Anson Bush Reserve. This is a lovely 10-hectares reserve with a 2 km walking track around a small lake and through native forest. It is situated near Te Puna between SH2, Loop Road and Armstrong Road. Unfortunately, many invasive weeds have taken hold and require manual eradicating. To get on top of this problem, monthly working bees are now being held every third Thursday of the month from 9.30am until noon. The next day is 17 Oct and you can also pencil in 21 Nov 2019. Last time there were about 10 of us, but we love to get some more people this time. Please meet us at the car park off Loop Road, off SH2. Bring suitable footwear, clothing, gloves, hat, sunblock, drink, food etc. Garden tools are available, but you can bring your own favorite tools if you like.
We are also looking for regular volunteers for trap lines. This job will take approximately 1 hour a month, with all equipment supplied.
Please share this invite with anyone you know who may be interested. If you have any creative ideas on how to attract groups to come along for working days, we love to hear from you.
The reserve is managed by WBOP District Council. The working bees are a partnership between Forest and Bird, QEII trust and the community.
Carpool is available from Katikati.
See you at l’Anson!
