Castledowns Wetland March Working Bee
The drought is over and the Dipton Stream was flowing too much for our Rural Women New Zealand bus trip held on the 26th February. We were not able to cross it to inspect the forest as it was too deep. During the drought it had almost stopped flowing.
Our plans for 2018 are to continue to open up the area and tidy up the work that we have been doing, to find the cabbage trees and to search and destroy the hawthorn trees. We have four afternoons for you to put on to your calendars and invite your friends along to help to make some progress.
The dates are Wednesday 28th March
We are able to supply cutting tools and gel for pasting on trees but if you would prefer to bring your own please do. Long gumboots leggings and overalls are a good idea sometimes . We like to stop for afternoon tea so if you have a new creation please bring it along and share.
We are happy for you to come and just enjoy the Wetland
