A lot of work has been completed this month and it is good to celebrate the fact that the whangawehi stream is fully fenced off on both sides of the river from the bridge to the Taharoa Trust (7.5 km). This is an achievement, well done to you all landowners, whanau, sponsors and agencies. The first native trees have been delivered today. A total of 47 000 should be established this winter on Pongaroa and Grandy Lake Forest.
The Health and Safety pre inspection visit was carried out on Friday with the contracting crew scheduled for mid July 2016.
Another milestone completed this month is the construction of our shelter, a magnificent building erected via donations from Carters, private contributions from Land owner Pat and Sue O’Brien and DOC. This shelter will offer a place to rest for those wanting to come and discover the restoration project whether they are trampers walking down the walkway or school students completing environmental work.
Thank you all for your hard work, you can be proud of your achievements.
