WARRINGTON RESERVE GROUP

By Karen Hobday

Planting time is nearly here again, so put Sunday 13 June at 10am
aside to come and help create our windbreak at Warrington Domain.
Although we have lost a few plants to drought this year, the native
flaxes and grasses are growing well and are tall enough to protect
young trees from the howling southerlies. This year we will be
planting more native trees.
Thank you to everyone who helped Mike with release weeding around
plants on the bank by the beach at the Otago Tree Society plantings.
There will be a couple of community weeding days there each year.
Submissions to the Coastal Dune Reserves Management Plan were sent in
to the DCC by 12 March, and we intend to speak to the hearing
committee in support of our submission.
We met with DCC parks officer Renee Gordon in March. Our plans for the
next year include a noticeboard area at the Warrington Domain with
information and interpretation panels.
