September 2018 Recipients
Summit Road Society Incorporated received $1,505 to purchase 100 possum traps for the Ohinetahi Bush Reserve.
The 150-hectare Reserve is home to an array of native birds including bellbirds, fantails, silver eyes and grey warblers. The new possum traps will be used as part of its pest management programme to continue to protect and increase the native bird population in the area. The Society aims to further the vision of Harry Ell by working to enhance, preserve, and protect the nature, beauty and open character of the hills of Banks Peninsula for people to enjoy.
