Mahoe-nui Winter Planting Day

26/06/2021 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.

Plants and spades provided by CCC. It’s often wet underfoot so please wear sturdy footwear and warm clothing. Bring your own gloves. We plant 200-300 trees each day . This will requires site preparation (grubbing the planting spots). If a few people are keen to help with this before the planting day please let us know.

Kids welcome with an adult.

For further information check out our website, or give us a call.

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.

(Postponement date Saturday 3rd July)
