somes islandThe ongoing effort by the Department of Conservation, the Council, and ordinary people like you and me to regenerate native flora and fauna around the city continues next month with a bit of a weeding mission out on Somes Island (aka Matiu).

DOC are calling for volunteers for a big weed-busting day on Saturday March 19 (Sunday 20th is the wet-day reserve). DoC will cover transport out to the island, and be putting on lunch. So, if you haven’t had a chance to get out to the predator-free jewel of the harbour yet, here’s your chance to do so while doing a good deed at the same time.

Contact the aptly named Jo Greenman at DOC for more details. Phone 4708416, or jgreenman at doc dot govt dot nz.
