Living Legends: Thank you and 2012 date

by Liz Sherwood, Community Relations Ranger, Coastal Otago Area Office, Department of Conservation.

Job well done, thanks to you!

The Department of Conservation and Living Legends wish to thank all the residents of Blueskin Bay who helped with the planting day at Orokonui Scenic Reserve in September. We are grateful for your support in preparation for, and on, the day. We were delighted with the turnout of around 220 people, and the result – all 4600 native plants in the ground.

Ongoing maintenance of plantings is required, and this will be provided by contractors and volunteers. If you are interested in helping, and have a little time to spare, weeding around plants over summer as the grass grows would be highly beneficial.

A follow-up Living Legends planting day is scheduled for Sunday 2 September 2012. We will be planting a further 2500 natives around the estuary margin. Any plants that don't survive this summer will be replaced then.

DOC and Living Legends look forward to your involvement again next year. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Coastal Otago Area Office Ph 477 0677 or email rhiscock@doc.govt.nz

Thank you and happy holidays!
