Saturday 13 September saw Sustainable Coastlines support Otatara Landcare Group in conjunction with Living Legends put a further 1000 trees in the ground in the impressive 14 hectare reserve at Bushy Point.
This is a large scale restoration project where grazed land is being turned into a self sustaining eco-system featuring ponds, native plants and fantastic birdlife. This outstanding community project aims to link the coastal fringe vegetation with the residual totara forest by re-vegetating the pasture separating the two.
All the trees for this particular planting were grown by the fantastic Southland Community Nursery, click here for more information about this tremendous community facility and the group behind it.
