Winter 2014 Wetland Scenes
The creek in winter spate flows past 18 month old cabbage trees.
Natural grass walkway under mature totara and kahikatea. Wetland can be seen through the trees to the right.
The boardwalk completed during autumn will enable use of the walkway even when the river is high.
The creek meanders between kahikatea trees, with flax at the water's edge.
Another view of the wetland. Bamboo stakes mark the location of plants to assist in releasing work during the summer.
The creek flows through into a large floodplain. This area will be planted up with native species in the next few years.

Winter 2013 School Planting Day
Pupils from Tatuanui School gather ready for a busy day planting trees.
The whole morning isn't just about planting trees. Here the children learn about the ecology of the native forest.
Part of the day is spent studying the structure of a forest, and analysing the planting site.
