Volunteer planting dates set for June
31st May 2013
Two dates have been allocated in June for volunteers to help
with planting on Rotoroa. So if you're keen to lend a hand, put
Saturday 22 or 29 June in your diary. 360 Discovery Cruises offer a
40% discount for volunteers - just mention you are volunteering
when you book.
Island ecologist Jo Ritchie will be coordinating the day, which
will comprise three to four hours of planting, with the rest of the
day left to enjoy the island. Planting will take place around
wetland areas as well as around the new island hostel, so make sure
you wrap up warm, and even bring a change of clothes. Spades and
gloves will be provided.
WHAT TO BRING
- Lunch and a drink
- Bring boots or gumboots (not sandshoes or open shoes)
- Warm clothes and wet weather gear (a change of clothes is also
a good idea
