Rotary Tree Challenge, a worldwide Rotary goal set by Rotary International President Ian Riseley, where every Rotary member plants at least one tree each and changes the environment for the better by Earth Day on 22nd April 2018.
Stepping up to the challenge Rotary Remuera members turned up in force at Waiatarua Wetlands on Sunday 18 September 2017 and planted altogether a combination of 100 trees and shrubs and also transplanted approximately 15 bushes; a great effort by all volunteers. The plants were carefully selected to match the species already planted and the shrubs will provide food for birds and insects and shelter for the young trees.
With the weather on our side, sweet treats for the workers and a positive and productive team we all had fun and made a difference. Thank you to the extra volunteers including Desley Simpson (Orakei Councillor) who joined in and got their hands dirty; was great to see locals getting involved.
