Pukorokoro Miranda School Holiday Program

When : July 11 to July 22

In association with The Flock project we are trialing a school holiday program. It will run on week days only from July 11 to July 22 - between 10.00 a.m. and 12 noon. A story time will be followed by bird decorating (brightly painting ready-primed cut-out birds and sticking on re-used bits and pieces to add to The Flock). Admission is free. To register interest please phone the centre on 09 2322781 or email admin@miranda-shorebird.org.nz

In the first week the tides run from late morning to mid-afternoon so there should be birds to see as well. Of course, as there is also the Miranda Hot Springs - bathing togs might be handy too!

PLANTING WEEKEND

Karen Opie has organised a pingao and spinifex planting for 12 - 14 August at Nukuhakari Station. (West Coast between Marakopa and Awakino)

If you are interested please contact Karen. Numbers are limited.

Nukuhakari is a sheep and beef station just north of Awakino where the lack of a sand dune has resulted in huge sand drifts inland. David Bergin and Jim Dahm from the Dunes Trust are carrying out two projects there.. One is a "difficult sites" project to re-establish the sand dune and eliminate sand drift and pasture loss. The hope is that this will become the framework for similar sites around the country. This has been partially funded by DOC's Community Fund. Nukuharkari is also a site for testing fertiliser made from the pest fish koi carp and comparing it to synthetic gro tabs and plants planted without fertiliser.
