Sunday 5 November 2017, Family Eco-Fun Day at Bushy Point Otatara,1pm-3pm

Sunday 5 November 2017, Family Eco-Fun Day at Bushy Point Otatara,1pm-3pm - Start at the Southland Community Nursery (Park at 183 Grant Road car park then follow the signs)

The Eco Fun Day will make the most of the Bushy Point walking track, nature walk and activities, the pond and planted areas. Our day will also take advantage of the Southland Community Nursery Education Centre’s attractions. We will identify bugs and plants, discover the uses of some plants and help the Otatara Landcare Group to plant more trees in this forest-in-the-making. We will see what lives in the pond; try our hand at boat building and learn about pesky possums and other pests. This is a fun-filled family afternoon and we welcome you to join us. KCC trips are family trips so it is essential that each child or group of children is accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them - parents and grandparents have fun too!

Contact KCC Coordinator Bronwyn 213 0017, , or Chris Rance (Southland Community Nursery) 2131161 for further details.


SOUTHLAND COMMUNITY NURSERY reopens after winter break Friday 22 September

Join us again, each Friday morning from 9-noon (or any part to suit you) and be part of the voluntary team which cares for native plants by growing them from seed and cuttings; weeding, watering; repotting etc. Many of these plants are used for the on-going plantings at Bushy Point or are given away to volunteers to help keep Otatara green
