Join Forest & Bird's Dunedin Branch for a working bee at Waikouaiti Lagoon to remove invasive weeds. 

Gear to bring

  • Leather gloves
  • Loppers
  • Safety glasses or goggles
  • Tough clothing
  • A wide brimmed hat
  • Grubber for pulling plants out by the roots

After liaising with the Hawkesbury Lagoon Society and with permission now obtained from DOC, we are in a position to attack the boxthorn weeds (Lycium ferocissimum) on the northern boundary of the Hawkesbury Lagoon.

Weather permitting, we will meet at the lagoon in Waikouaiti, on the Inverary St side, at 10.30 am on Sunday 14th July.

We will chop down any boxthorn and pack the cut pieces into wool fadges, for removal from the site.
