Gully trip this Sunday 25th August

Posted 4 years, 3 months ago    0 comments

Just a reminder to let you know that this weekend a gully and stream side restoration at the Mangaonua Esplande is happening. The project is being lead by the Ngati Haua Mahi Trust and provides an opportunity for you to become involved in the community planting activity.

The planting will start at 10.30am Sunday 25 August 2013 and there will also be a tour of the project and an opportunity to learn about aspects of gully restoration. Refreshments will be provided after the planting.

If you wish to attend please RSVP by Friday, 23 August 2013 by emailing gerard.kelly@hcc.govt.nz  or calling the Parks and Open Spaces team on 838 6622.

We will meet at the reserve entrance at the end of Silverdale Road. You will need to bring a spade, suitable footwear (gumboots are best!) and clothing as the planting area is wet and boggy.

This project is a collaboration with the Ngati Haua Mahi Trust, University of Waikato ‘Gully Seminar Series’ events, Hamilton City Council, Waikato Regional Council, Mighty River Power, Department of Conservation, and Toti Trust, with funding from the Waikato River Authority.

 If you would like to receive further information please don’t hesitate to contact me, or alternatively contact the Ngati Haua Mahi Trust communications advisor, Dr Bill McArthur on bill.m@macarthurgroup.co.nz
