Since the formation of the Park in 1975, annual planting has greatly extended the original areas of native bush. Steeper gully areas have been fenced off and the current planting plan aims to fill gradually these. This year the planting is on a slope below the lookout, looking back to Rangitoto
Public planting days for 2017 are as above, with an extra day on 10th June organised by the Chinese community. Please feel free to come on this day if you cannot make the others. We also need help on each Friday prior to the planting days to help lay the plants out on site.
Planting is from 10am to 1pm, and followed by a free BBQ. Follow signs at the park entrance to planting site. Dress for the weather and wear closed footwear suitable for a muddy slope. The site is exposed to the south so watch the weather forecast, but planting will go ahead regardless of the weather. Gloves and spades are provided but feel free to bring your own.
