Te Mahia School environmental programme

On the 17th of February, Te Mahia students put their tramping shoes on for a walk in the head waters of the Whangawehi Catchment. Graham Douglas, Forest Manager for Grandy lake Forest explained the multiple roles a commercial forestry plays as well as some information around sylviculture and tree biology. The students learnt how  to find out the age of a tree.

Malcolm Smith took the students for a bush walk in the Mahia scenic reserve where we all learnt lots of amazing things on our very special native forest.

A big thank you to the school team, Malcolm, Graham, Jenny, Rae and all the parents for their help during this amazing day.  helping hands IMG_4929 IMG_4934 IMG_4946 IMG_4949 IMG_4956 IMG_4964 IMG_4984 forestry presentationnorthern rata
