We were very fortunate with the weather at our second planting event this year; this time at Maitahi Scientific Reserve near Okato. The children worked enthusiastically and carefully planting out over 50 koheriki (Scandia rosifolia) in various locations at the reserve. Koheriki has a current conservation status of ‘Threatened- Nationally Critical’ so these plants all grown by Moturoa School children are particularly valuable. We were also able to see the healthy koheriki at the reserve that we planted last year. The children can be very proud of their ongoing contribution to the conservation of this special Taranaki coastal plant. Many thanks go to Wayne (Kaitiaki Whenua) and Taipuni (Toa Taiao) and DOC staff, Ellen and Matt, for their help preparing the planting site, and providing wonderful assistance on the day. It was also great that Wayne was able to tell us about the special cultural connections and history of the reserve and surrounding area. Special thanks also go to Sharon, Catherine and Leah for helping us out with transport and for also providing great support on the day.
