This year, the Albert Eden Local Board offered to fund the restoration of a site in lower Meola near the Moa Reserve in Point Chevalier. STEPS successfully applied for the funding, and will be working with a team run by Katherine Read of Wai Care, including Te Ngahere and local people, to carry out the planting and weed control.
Initially, we have arranged for a joint planting day, and are hoping for a good turnout of STEPS members and supporters to support this initiative downstream from our usual area of focus.
The details are below – hope to see you there
PLANTING DAY DETAILS
There will be a lower Meola Planting day on the slopes of MOTAT opposite Moa Reserve on Saturday 20 July from 10:30am onward.
Where: MOTAT – Main entrance off Meola Road. You can park in the MOTAT carpark and request access from the staff in the hanger if no Wai Care co-ordinator is present at the time of your arrival. Follow the signage to the planting site. See map:
What to bring: Gumboots, old clothes and wet weather gear, gloves, a water bottle and a spade if you have one!
