Aim: to grow eco-sourced native seedlings for sale to the public, and for restoration projects around Okarito Lagoon and the West Coast, while sharing knowledge of the Glaciers to Wetland ecosystem. Removal of gorse and other weeds enhance the landscape view, and allow regeneration of native species which provide the best habitat for rare kotuku, bitterns and godwits. Nursery is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays for sales from 10am to 1 pm or by arrangement. Volunteers welcome any day
