Mahoe-nui Winter Planting Day

27 June 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 and planting days we will meet at 9am at the corner of Wakefield Ave and Colenso street to car pool up to the site.

Plants,spades and gloves provided by CCC, It’s often wet underfoot so please wear sturdy footwear and warm clothing. This year we are planning to plant 300 trees at each planting day instead of the usual 200. This will require more site preparation (grubbing the planting spots). If a few people are keen to help with this before the planting day please let us know.
