A wetlands restoration and planting project at the Waianakarua River will feature at the annual meeting of a North Otago organisation that is the oldest of its type in New Zealand.
The North Otago Treeplanting Association was set up in 1937, and today continues its love of trees.
''There is hardly an area of North Otago that does not have trees donated and planted by the association,'' secretary Rob Douglas said.
That included the Waitaki Lakes reserves areas where massive planting and landscaping, in conjunction with the then Ministry of Works and Electricorp, was undertaken as Lakes Benmore and Aviemore were formed.
One of its latest projects is at the Waianakarua River mouth.
Waianakarua Wetlands representatives Bronwyn Judge and Margaret Wing will speak and illustrate their experiences on the progress to date at the association's annual meeting on Friday night.
