Mahoe-nui Autumn Plant Care Day

15 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 .
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.

Please note for all the working bees we will meet at 9am at the corner of Wakefield Ave and Colenso street to car pool up to the site.

The site is on the hairpin bend on Evans Pass Road (opp Rapanui Bush)

The CCC rangers provide sharp hedgeclippers and gloves to cut back the long grass around the plants.., Please wear sturdy footwear, sunhat or warm clothes as appropriate
There will be a hot drink and morning tea provided to reward all the hard workers!

Kids welcome with an adult.
