Buckletons Bay Planting Day

On Sunday 13 July the Buckletons Bay contingent of the Takatu Landcare Group had its first Auckland Council supported planting day. After all the rain of the previous week we were lucky to have sunshine for our morning of planting. Between the 9 volunteers and 2 hard working NZ Biosecurity staff  we were able to plant about 500 native plants at two sites in the bush reserve, in areas previously cleared of japanese honeysuckle and other weeds. A welcome barbecue and refreshments were provided courtesy of Auckland Council at the end.
Many thanks to Peter, Veronica, Georgia, Alice, Sue, Jon, Brent, Mary and Ed for all your efforts.
