Pauanui Plantathon

We need your help with this year’s Plantathon! Please rally friends, family, and neighbours for our third major planting event, working again in collaboration with TCDC and Coastcare Waikato.
We will be planting about 10,000 native dune plants over two days, this time at four sites. It's going to be a fantastic community event, and we'd love to have you join us for one or both days.
Where and when do we meet:
• On Friday 17th May 10:00 am, we will meet on the reserve adjacent to the Mountain Vista parking area for our morning plant to complete the Southend restoration and then move up once we have finished to the airfield windsock parking area, we expect around lunch time, to plant the Jacksons Claim site.
• On the Saturday 18th May 9:30 am, we will meet at the surf club to plant a large upper dune area at Claxton Avenue and then move to Royal Billy Point once that are is completed to plant a small area here too.
What to bring:
• Closed-toe footwear suitable for working in the sand
• Water bottle and lunch
• A spade, ideally narrow ended
• Gloves (if desired)
• Hat, sun screen etc depending upon the weather
A request:
• Please e-mail info@pauanuidunes.org.nz if you are coming to help plant, which days and how many planters you will bring with you.
IMPORTANTLY IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS/QUESTIONS please e-mail us info@pauanuidunes.org.nz or give Martin a call on 021 410 008.
IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, any changes or postponements will be promptly announced on our Facebook page.
THANKS TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE MADE DONATIONS to enable this event to happen. A special thanks for funding from WWF NZ in partnership with the Tindall Foundation and also to Hopper Construction.
HOPEFULLY WE WILL SEE YOU ON ONE OR BOTH DAYS. YOUR PARTICIPATION WILL TRULY MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Together, we can preserve and enhance our local dune environment for generations to come. See you on the dunes
