ALL PARTIPANTS BOOK TICKETS ONLINE:
Continuing our give back to the community programme each year, this trip we will be tree planting at Long Bay Regional Park. Another extremely beautiful park that we always enjoy tramping over and around the peninsula. The planting days are very well organised as we have found with recent planting trips over the last few years.
Tree planting is really important, as it provides habitat for the native creatures that rely on the sustenance and cover provided by these trees and also in gullies where there have been slips in the past, to hold the ground together to help prevent further slippage.
Come be part of part of something amazing and feel rewarded and satisfied and please let friends and family know too, if they want to join in.
From the website:
Planting is usually from 10am to 1pm, and followed by a free BBQ. Follow signs at the park entrance to planting site. Dress for the weather, bring warm clothing, raincoat and gaitors are a good idea and wear closed footwear suitable for a muddy slope. Please watch the weather forecast, but planting usually goes ahead regardless of the weather (if in doubt check the Auckland Parks facebook page). Gloves and spades are provided but feel free to bring your own clean equipment.
(PLEASE, bring a change of clean footwear to change into afterwards so you are not possibly transferring any Kauri Dieback. Please ensure all of your gear is clean, as we are passing through Kauri'd areas).
Please ensure all your gear is scrubbed clean, in case we pass any Kauri'd areas and as always ensure you thoroughly clean your gear afterwards.
Please bring your own hand sanitiser just in case we need to stop somewhere along the way or use boot stations.
We will go for a short tramp afterwards and if it's a nice day, we may go for a swim for those keen, after. As we have with previous May planting events.
* Only come out with us if you are well https://covid19.govt.nz/alert-system/alert-level-1/

(Please note newbies, this tree planting does not qualify as a full day trip for membership applications, as we're only tramping part of the day).
