Here are the when/where/why details for the planting day at Taranaki Crossing Carpark

The car park is a key piece of tourism infrastructure at the Mangorei Track entrance to the increasingly popular Pouakai Crossing and part of Tapuae Roa – Taranaki’s regional economic strategy.

The toilet and car park, which was completed in late 2018, has been funded by the Government’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund and NPDC. This is on top of a $3.4 million Government investment in the iconic Pouakai Crossing.

· What sort of plants and how many?

The planting is taking place around the new carpark. The carpark and landscaping has been designed to complement the natural environment in which it sits.

2700 native species – trees, shrubs and ferns, suited to the semi-alpine environment.

· Time, date and meeting place/registration process?

Sunday 12th of May – (Mothers Day) 9.30am until the plants are planted – 12ish?

It’s best if volunteers arrive for the introduction and briefing at 9.30am.

No RSVP required but keep an eye on the Facebook event page for any updates or postponement due to weather.

If the weather is awful it will be postponed to 19 May.

If you can find out what the hapu and/or iwi want to do and let me know so I can add it to the run sheet for the day that would be great.

Many thanks for your help.
