Service Project and Natural History Lessons

22 Certificate in Outdoor Education students headed up to Punakaiki on Tuesday 24th May to plant 450 native trees and do some flax maintenance at the Punakaiki Coastal Restoration Project. It is an impressive long-term project between Conservation Volunteers, DOC, Rio Tinto, and Lincoln University that has been running since 2008. So far they have had 7580 volunteer days and planted 132,455 trees - plus 450 trees that we planted yesterday.
