Chinese Conservation Education Trust Planting June 2017

Over forty Chinese volunteers from the Chinese Conservation Education Trust came to plant near Coromandel last Saturday. Fabulous weather, views and trees.Planters split into two groups, with the energetic ones taking the steep walk to Kauri Hill overlooking the harbour at Coromandel. The other members planted at the flat area developed by TCDC as a WW1 commemorative planting site.
Keith Stephenson of Adventure Racing Coromandel had arranged for lines to be cut through the bush, holes to be dug and the seedlings placed at both sites.
A collection was made in the bus on the way home and a very generous donation to Kauri 2000 was made.
CCET may be new to kauri planting but they have a tradition in conservation, their organisation having won a 2003 Green Ribbon award for raising awareness of environmental issues

.A new experience in NZ

Beautiful day ,enjoyed by all!

Health & Safety always important
