Volunteer planting at Hut

Thanks to Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust and Student Volunteer Army we had a great working bee to improve the Rod Donald Hut access track. Gorse has been cut back carefully to retain a shade canopy to encourage existing native vegetation to grow along the track side in its place. 78 new eco-sourced natives were lovingly planted, each with a woolly mat and netting cage. A vast quantity of shingle was lugged up the track to improve the surface.

A big thanks to Sophie and Grace for organising people and to all who participated for your hard work and big smiles.

The Rod Donald Trust is absolutely delighted with what you have achieved.

Student Volunteer Army - what a team!
