Lupin removal for mid-beach

Posted by SC Comments Off on Lupin removal for mid-beach

Piha locals are invited to two sessions to remove lupins from the stretch of beach at mid-Beach north of the helicopter landing pad.

Organised by the Parks staff for the Waitakere Ranges Local Board, the project aims to remove lupins from Piha dunes to enable native dune plants to flourish, rather than being smothered by the weedy lupins.

Headquarters for the projects will be clearly marked with WRLB flags.

The dates are:

10-1pm Sunday 23 November Area 1 (see map below)

10-1pm Sunday 30 November Area 2 (see map below)

Loppers and small pruning saws will be provided, but if you have these tools, bring your own. NZBiosecurity Ltd will paint the stumps to prevent regrowth, and will remove plants from the sites.

Follow up by hand pulling small plants will be encouraged, especially for property owners opposite the dunes.

The working bee will be followed by a sausage sizzle.
