School plantings for Conservation Week 2015

Guthrie-Smith plantingHawke’s Bay’s annual ‘Conservation Week’ schools planting programme begins at Tūtira this Monday (3 August).

Pan Pac Forest Products Ltd is again sponsoring this event which is in its twenty-third year and is run in conjunction with Department of Conservation and Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.

Each year, five schools take part and this year Greenmeadows, Frimley, Bledisloe, Twyford and Mayfair school students will be bused to Tūtira to experience conservation work first hand.

This year there is a new arrangement with the Guthrie Smith Trust who will take each school group for a walk and talk around their Arboretum at Tūtira and introduce students to the wide range of trees from around the world that are growing there.
