All are invited to join Friends of Waitoetoe Park and Horizons Regional Council at Waitoetoe Park on Saturday August 23rd to plant the River walkway.
Planting starts at 10am and will be carried out between the Park and Dittmer Drive. It will conclude with a barbeque at 12 midday.
Horizons environmental management officer Neil Mickleson says the planting adds to the great work already carried out by Friends of Waitoetoe Park to restore native flora along the river bank.
"This planting will really add to the whole River experience, adding so much value to the area," he says.
Those who'd like to get involved are encouraged to bring their own spade, gumboots and gloves.
