Motupipi Sandspit Wilding Tree Working Bee

Help towards the restoration of Motupipi Sandspit by pulling sycamore and pine seedlings

Motupipi Sandspit is a wonderful dune habitat which in the past had been extensively restored until a fire devastated the area and weeds invaded. Tasman Environmental Trust recently obtained funds from the Lotteries Board to contract Project De-Vine Environmental Trust to remove the invasive weeds. As part of this a community working bee is being held to hand pull sycamore and pine seedlings. It would be great to see lots of people there and a fantastic opportunity to visit the sandspit.

Morning tea provided
Please bring water, suitable clothing, gloves, loppers or retractable handsaws.
For further information see article in 13th March GB Weekly or contact projectmohua@tet.org.nz
