Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust

Volunteer Bulletin June 2023

We only have two working bees for the coming month. There will be no working bees on the first two weekends, the first being Kings Birthday weekend and on the second there will be an onsite function.

The main focus for the two working bee will be vegetation control. The first will be trimming back manuka that is beginning to encroach the outside of the fence in the southeastern area. The last weekend of the month will be line clearing, tiding up a few last lines ready for the high risk tracking card run in July

For those volunteers yet to complete our survey, please do so as the result will be invaluable in forming strategies for the future direction of our volunteer programme. There is a link to the survey in the bulletin.


Volunteer Bulletin May 2023

The key focus for this months working bees is the continuation of the essential sanctuary task of line clearing. This is important to ensure easy access throughout the reserve for many tasks such as tunnel card monitoring and many aspects of our kiwi work.

Our other main focus is the on going maintenance of the lake walkway.

The last working bee for the month will see a general tidy up around the offices and workshop plus there is a stack of traps at the workshop that require some TLC.
