Doing things a bit differently to usual, we'll walk a track on the western side of the park that the club hasn't done before and then head to join in the tree planting at 10am - 1pm.
Last time we did tree planting here, we had a massive club turnout, joining in a huge group of the public, of which everyone managed to plant 4k of trees in less than 3 hours!!!
We're usually planting in a gully, so less exposed to the elements.
Help to give back in a park we love tramping in and around. The planting is easy, fun and very social.
(Don't forget a raincoat, in case we do have a bit of rain).
They provide sausages and refreshments when we're finished!
Please ensure that your footwear and gear is completely clean. They'll probably have a boot station for us again too.
This tramp includes a mixture of coastal, farm and bushwalking within and around this park after planting.
If you need a pickup from Silverdale, please RSVP/register via the website, or let the organiser know directly. NB. Registration is not required if leaving from Takapuna, or meeting the bus in the park.
