Walk to Castlerock cliffs and Castledowns Wetland

17 February 2019

Hi Wetlanders,

I hope you have all managed to get holidays in the sun somewhere. It seems that the new year work has nearly begun and work will need to be started on the Wetland again.

We have Chris Freer a possum contractor in the Wetland at the moment working on getting rid of possums and other pests but the poison will be removed by the field day but there will still be feeding stations.

Meet at the Cliffs at 10am or the Wetland at 1.30 pm

I have arranged a walk with the Southland Tramping Club members to explore the Castlerock limestone cliffs with a meeting time of 10 am at the roadside, and Brian Russell the land owner will assist us to park off the road and will show us around the limestone formations for approximately 2 hours and then we will go to the wetland and do some more work on the tracks . Everybody is welcome to do this walk but please let me know if you are coming.

Phone number 032176428

I have not been up to the cliff top so this will be a chance for people to explore this area.

Bring a coat, hats, water and afternoon tea. Gloves, boots and overalls are good for the wetland.

If you have any questions please get back to me

Ann Irving
