It has been a big planting season for Waikato RiverCare this year, with 32,034 plants having been put into the ground at seven different RiverCare project sites over the last few months.
This season’s planting started in May, where 4,895 native trees and bushes were planted at Coalfields Road, a DoC/Fish and Game partnership site. The planting finished up in October, with volunteer groups from Genesis Energy and Spark spending a day putting 1,800 plants in the ground at Taupiri Ki Waenganui. Taupiri Ki Waenganui has been our biggest planting project this year, with Waterside Planters planting another 11,845 at the site in September/October.
Next season’s planting is looking to be an even bigger job with 47,870 plants forecasted to be put in the ground at 10 different project sites.
Thanks so much to all our funders, sponsors, and supporters for making this possible!
