Realising river trail dream
Waikato River Trails Trust is delighted to have another group of young people assisting with environmental enhancement along the river trails.
recent planting has coincided nicely with a spell of wet weather.
Tokoroa High School students and support staff travelled to Lake Maraetai to plant 1400 native trees along a newly formed piece of trail that links Mangakino and Whakamaru villages.
This latest riparian restoration will add to the enjoyment of trail users while also establishing a food source for birds.
This restoration work also has a positive longterm impact on the water quality of our lakes.
Thanks to the Gateway Programme for their support and the Tokoroa High School Service Academy students and staff for their dedication to this planting project.
This new trail section between Mangakino and Whakamaru is part of the cycling and walking event of our Grand Opening being held on Saturday, November 5.
The event is free and people are invited to register to come along and join us to celebrate the ‘‘ realisation of a dream’’ of a 100km Waikato River Trail.
