To develop the track to its full potential takes money as it requires timber for steps, signs, picnic tables, sprays to clear the weeds and thousands of trees to replant the reserve with a better range of food and habitat for the birds. Having done this it has a real value to the community as a place of peace, to commune with nature and to take part in exercise. It adds value to the town as a place to live and also as a place to visit as a tourist.
In recognition of this the Far North District Council have awarded the project an infrastructure grant to complete the work and for this we are very grateful.
Still a few boxes to tick but we are on our way.
