Conservation Week Event Saturday 14th October
The Department of Conservation, Bay of Plenty Regional
Council and Western Bay District Council are joining forces with Youth Search
and Rescue (YSAR) to do battle with pest plants.
The Orokawa Reserve is being invaded by wild ginger and
climbing asparagus. In order to prevent these pest plants from taking over the
Reserve YSAR will be carrying out a ‘search and destroy’ mission on
Saturday 14th October.
YSAR teams will be sent into the bush
to search for wild ginger and climbing asparagus. They will pull out smaller
plants and gps tag larger plants for DOC to return to and destroy at a later
While this is happening, the community is invited to come
along and learn about pest plants that threaten the area.
There will also be a
‘weed swap’ offered – locals can bring along a rubbish bag of pest plants * and
swap it for a native plant. An extra native plant will be given for rubbish
bags full of wild ginger and/or climbing asparagus!
When: Saturday 14th October.
