Arrowtown autumn planting days
Three community native tree planting days will be held this autumn at keystone sites around Arrowtown.
Organisers invite members of the public to join them as they continue working together to restore the biodiversity by planting native trees and shrubs that will provide food and habitat for native birds, insects and lizards.
Planting trees also gives the community an opportunity to take positive action against climate change. Morning tea (with extra marshmallows for the kids) will be provided by the team at the Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa, and Crown Plaza Queenstown.
Planting days kick off from 9am and continue right through the day. Volunteers are welcome to join at any time.
