Mahoe-nui Autumn Plant Care Day
13 February at 9:15 am - 11:30 am
Mahoe-nui is a CCC reserve behind Sumner and planting at Mahoe-nui helps prevent erosion into the Sumnervale stream and provides a corridor of bush for native wildlife. The native forest restoration project is led by Port Hills Rangers Di Carter-and Fiona Fenton . The site is on the hairpin bend on Evans Pass Road (opp Rapanui Bush).
Please note for all the working bees we will meet at 9am at the corner of Wakefield Ave and Colenso Street in Sumner to register and car pool up to the site.
The CCC rangers provide sharp hedge clippers and to cut back the long grass around the plants. Please wear sturdy footwear, sunhat or warm clothes as appropriate. Bring your own gloves. There will be a hot drink and morning tea provided to reward all the hard workers!
Kids welcome with an adult.

Helen Hills(Forest and Bird) and Vicky Southworth (Sumner Environment Group) work together as volunteer coordinators. Thank you to all our volunteers who provide the muscle to make the project happen. We look forward to seeing you at Mahoe-nui, enjoying the birdsong and views(not to mention the yummy morning teas!) on our volunteer days.
