Planting Days

The Trust has established an annual planting programme which has seen the planting of over 35,000 trees and plants between 2002 and 2014.

Get involved!  Planting days for 2015 are:

Sunday 7 June 2015, 9am to 12.30pm
Sunday 14 June 2015, 9am to 12.30pm

Planting is a key project of the Trust to help the ecological enhancement of the Reserve and provide an opportunity for community involvement.  The Trust will continue its revegetation efforts at the Busby Head end of the Reserve with planting around the coastal fringe and the strategic planting on the banks of streams feeding into the harbour.

Manuka, kanuka, flax and pohutukawa trees grown at the KeriKeri Shadehouse by Royal Forest & Bird volunteers are planted.

The success of the planting programme has been possible due to the valuable support and efforts of volunteers.

So gather up your family and friends and join us on Sunday 7th & 14th June (rain or shine). Meet at Bream Head Scenic Reserve Urquhart Bay Car Park at 9am. If you arrive after 9am walk past the gun emplacement and to Home Bay and you will find us there.

Bring warm clothes, good footwear, something to drink and a spade (if you have one).

Morning tea will be provided at 10:30am

If the weather is so bad to be considered dangerous we’ll postpone the planting to the following Sunday.

For further information ring Wendy Holland on (09) 434 0934.

We look forward to seeing you there. Ka kite ano.
