WHC reserved for Riparian Planting

You may have noticed all the digger and mulching activity occurring outside the Firth yard, on the Hetherington Road reserve recently.

 

Home to some outdoor equipment, this popular walking pathway is getting rid of its pesky plants, pampas, and exposed rubbish.

 

The TCDC Community Board has allocated $20,000, and will be supported by Waikato Regional Council, who are to supply the native plants from their nursery stock, in order to clean up this area.

 

“This strip of land, provides an important habitat for our estuary birds”, chairman Kerry Gibb atones.  “By cleaning up this area, and planting the area in native flora, we have better means to be able to help control predator and pest animal numbers too.”

 

Whangamata Harbour Care have an extensive trapping and baiting program, that runs around the whole of the Whangamata harbour and it’s upper estuary, with its objective of restoring bird numbers in and around the harbour.

 

As part of this community initiative, WHC have been elected to lead the planting of native trees and shrubs, provided by WRC.

 

Planting Day is Saturday 27th August 2022, at 10am.

Meet outside Firth on the Hetherington Road Reserve walkway.

Bring your own spade, gloves, drink - and a sunhat/sunscreen if it's sunny!

A BBQ will be provided afterwards (thanks to Lions Whangamata!)
