That elaeagnus in the bush behind the YHA has been on our minds, so we have decided to have a little go at it this Saturday, February 7. We will be there between 10am and noon so it’s not a marathon effort, just another nudge at it. If you are terribly keen and would like to stay up there longer, that’s fine, too!
Please bring: tools (loppers, chainsaw if possible, secateurs, hand saws) safety glasses, earmuffs, good gloves, a big smile
Wear: long sleeved shirts, long pants, sturdy boots
Park: along Opoutere Rd a bit from the YHA, they are full this weekend so please no parking on their grounds
We would love to see you, just follow the Nature Trail that winds up into the bush behind the YHA, look out for some red ribbon on a tree and listen out for our chainsaws! If you are not able to help feel free to pop along for a look at what we are trying to achieve as we free up some beautiful native bush from the smothering effects of the elaeagnus.
