Warbirds Over Wanaka has followed up its $20,000 donation to the Wanaka Water Project by helping plant almost 200 trees this week.
A team of 15 Warbirds Over Wanaka staff and volunteers joined with Te Kakano Community Plant Nursery volunteers for a planting day at the Department of Conservation’s Glendhu Wetland Wildlife Refuge on Tuesday .
The planting is part of the Wanaka Water Project’s aim to plant some 24,000 trees around Wanaka waterways over the next five years.
Wanaka Water Project Manager, Megan Williams, says it’s fabulous to have organisations like Warbirds making a donation and then following up with hands-on assistance planting some of the trees they have funded.
"We really appreciate their support. If others would like to donate, please select Love Lake Wanaka on the million metres website,” says Megan. www.millionmetres.org.nz/open-project/love-lake-wanaka
