Glenview Predator Control Group Launch

6.30 pm on September 11 at Glenview Community Centre

(corner of Tomin Road and Glenview Terrace)

Speaker: John Innes MSc, a wildlife ecologist with Landcare Research

We will distribute traps and information about their use and show you how to use our predator trapping results recording software.

Plant sale fundraiser

The annual Forest and Bird Waikato plant sale is on this weekend, Saturday and Sunday starting at 8am and not before. First in, first served. Bring cash.

At 88 Nixon St, Hamilton East.

Down the Right of way. Park on the road, we have trolley and wheelbarrows.

Thanks to the nurseries who have given plants: Full Bloom, Forest Flora, Growing Spectrum, Bruntwood Nursery, and Oderings.

Plant sale proceeds will go towards supporting pest animal control in Hamilton, so that biodiversity within the city can flourish. Forest and Bird are supporting the work of Predator Free Hamilton and the trap library which is being set up at Go-Eco through Predator Free 2050.

Talk to Hamilton Cage Bird Club

On 12 February Predator-Free Hamilton (PFH) Trust members Gwyneth Verkerk and Kemble Pudney gave a presentation on Predator-Free NZ, PFH, reasons for predator control and identifying common pests, trapping methods and how to get involved. It was very interesting to hear the range of environmental activities that club members are involved in and it brought home to us the number of different perspectives there are on predator control – but all with the same end in mind.
