3,600 native trees were planted on Saturday 8th June by seventy enthusiastic volunteers at the Tangatapu Wetland Restoration. Volunteers came from all around and as far away as Kerikeri.
With the hill area successfully planted last year, the focus this year was on the lower wetland area.
With new support from sponsors and on-going support from the landowners, Vic and Barb Turner, the restoration is picking up momentum and becoming a very exciting project.
Living Waters would like to extend a big "thank you" to the Shade House for growing the trees, and volunteers who made the planting day such a success. Next phases of the project will include more planting, forming ponds, a boardwalk and a bird viewing hide.
