Taking on a wetland project is not for the faint hearted and there are times where we have felt more than a little overwhelmed and that we were making no progress. Then we get a visit from a couple of the many supporters of Dayvinleigh Wetland and we are reminded just how far we have come.
This week Mike Aviss Biodiversity Officer for Marlborough District Council and Ecologist Geoff Walls of Taramoa Limited joined us on site. Despite the impending rain we set off through the wetland.
Our objectives for the day were to set up and GPS photo points through the wetland and talk through next steps for planting. Geoff had not been on site since 2014 and could definitely see our progress.
We now have 6 photo points set up so we can regularly take photos from the same spots to compare growth, and a plan for winter 2019 planting and maintenance.
