Hi nature lovers!
Our weeding bees in I’Anson Reserve in Te Puna will recommence on Thursday 18 June, and from then every third Thursday of the month. We meet 9.30 am at the reserve entrance on Loop Road, just off SH2, very close to the Te Puna roundabout. Finish 11.30am.
Please donate 2 hours of your time to help maintain this beautiful reserve! We recommend to wear sturdy shoes and bring a water bottle; we will supply everything else. If you are planning to come along, please email or phone Kate (in case of unforeseen postponement).
The Friends of I’Anson Reserve (supported by QEII and Tauranga Forest & Bird) had held a very successful weeding bee just before lockdown. These volunteers removed another few hundred tree weeds and palms, and stopped a large infestation of Moth Plant in its tracks. While we were unable to go to I’Anson Reserve during lock-down, we have been planning for the year ahead. A pandemic doesn’t stop keen conservationists!
ALSO if you have a spare hour per month, please help us check our trap and bait station network. It’s still in the planning but hoping to launch in July. More news soon.
Cheers! Kate Loman-Smith
