Dunework 23 August 2008

Hutt City Council’s reserves coordinator Rosie Doole organises & supervises ongoing dunework with volunteers from the Bays.

Rosie writes:NZ native sand-binding plants are much more effective as fore dune plants than introduced Marram grass and exotic ice plant.  So on the front edge of the dune at Windy Point these two have been replaced with pingao (golden sand sedge) and spinifex (silvery sand grass). 
Please use the obvious paths and give the new plants time to get established.  Big thank you to everyone who came!”
