Planting day in the dunes at Whitireia Park.

Last year we planted spinifex in the dunes closest to the coast, this year we are planting just behind the spinifex with pingao, sand coprosma, wiwi and sand Carex. It is a very easy site, flat and sandy but exposed so wear appropriate clothing. If you want a map sent to you contact Robyn on [masked]. If unsure about the weather on the day txt[masked] (Chris). Directions to the planting site - From Porirua via Titahi Bay Road runs into Main Road, right into Bay Drive, 1st right into Thornley then into park entrance, continue over the hill (magnificent views) down to the carpark. Spades, hot drinks, food are supplied. Bring gloves and warm clothes.

    The weather gods are going to be kind to us. It wasn't looking good earlier in the week, but now it looks as though it will be fine. Bring several layers just in case its cold.
