Official Opening of the new Bird Viewing Hide
When? - Thursday, July 7 starting at 10am.
Where? - Wairio Wetland, South Wairarapa
How long? - Planting 2 hours
Starting point - Travel 5km south of Kahutara and turn right into Parera Road and travel another 3km towards Lake Wairarapa.
We hope to have Better Nature grub the tall fescue from the spots they have already pre-sprayed so the planting will be relatively easy. We plan on planting about 500 plants in two hours. The balance of 1,200 will be panted by Better Nature.
Then we will relocate to just opposite the Kilmore Lodge (about 1km south) for tea/coffee & a sausage sizzle.
Once fortified, it will be a short walk (or Side-by-Side ride for some) to the Bird Viewing Hide in Stage 4 for the official opening.
Hopefully we will see you all and do pass the word on – planting days are always fun and you do come away with a sense of having made a difference!!!
