Walk­ers asked to help weed track

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

The Te Pahu¯ land­care group is call­ing for help from Te Awa­mutu.

Dur­ing Con­ser­va­tion Week 2018, the group planted na­tive plants in a wet area at the be­gin­ning of the Nikau Walk­way.

How­ever, with the spring weather, con­volvu­lus has grown up and smoth­ered all of the re­cently planted na­tive plants.

The group is ask­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic who go for a walk along the Kani­whani­wha Stream to stop and gen­tly un­tan­gle the bind weed from around the na­tive plants.

The site is at the start of the track lo­cated by the track signs.

The na­tive plants are easy to lo­cate be­cause they have all been staked.

If the weeds are kept at bay the na­tive plants will have a chance to flour­ish.

The Te Pahu¯ land­care group con­sists of vol­un­teers who hold an­nual plant­ing days along the Kani­whani­wha stream, and monthly weed­ing ses­sions along the Nikau walk­way.
