Walkers asked to help weed track
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.
