The Nelson Tasman Climate Change Forum is organising a working bee on the Wai-iti River along with members of Forest & Bird and the Tasman Environmental Trust
Car pooling: leaving at 8.45am from the RIchmond Badminton Association Hall, Gladstone Rd,
What to bring: gloves; secateurs, pruning saw, loppers, grubbers .... and if you own a Vigilant weed paste tube, that would also be appreciated. We will have some on site. Also remember your sunhat, strong footwear, parka and own drink and snack!
Our primary aim is: Barton Rd, Spring Grove. We will be releasing trees, and cutting and pasting woody weeds from the area planted in natives.
Our secondary aim, if we have a large turnout, will be to clear Old Man's Beard from plantings further downstream around the Three Rivers track, accessed from the bridge crossing the Wai-iti on Waimea West Road and possibly also Pugh Rd.
Wet weather cancellation: if rain is forecast, we will send out an email on the 19th September, postponing the working bee. We will also post this on the Forum's Ning platform.
