YEPT and World Environmental Day
Thursday 5th June, 2008
A group of dedicated volunteers joined the YEPT staff to help us celebrate World Environmental Day, as well as Arbour Day. We were happy to see them, as the weather prediction was not very exciting and we never know how many people will turn up to a public planting day.
A group of our 'Wednesday nursery volunteers', many of whom were with us the day before, turned out with smiles on their faces and spades in their hands. And as usual, the weather predictions were wrong and we had a lovely day planting over 250 native trees and shrubs at Okia Reserve* on the Otago Peninsula.
*Okia Reserve is a reserve, open to the public, owned jointly by the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust and the Dunedin City Council. For more information on the reserve please see our Okia North End Guided Walk.
