Announcement for Sunday 14th August (correction)

Just got the following correction from Cherry Douglas:

We have just been sent an email to say that this is being postponed - new date to be advised – something to do with possibly confusion over the Living Legends. I do not know any more than that sorry but will keep you all informed


The Bay of Plenty Regional Council is planning to run a get-together for Community Care Groups at Hamurana Springs on Sunday 14 August.
Its purpose is to facilitate information sharing between the Care Groups (a bit like the get-together organised by DOC recently but with a bit more of a practical focus).
They will have room available for the various groups to set up posters or have stuff to hand out etc. and have 400 trees, donated by the Honda Tree Fund, to plant on the edge of the golf course.
It will run from 9:30 - 12:30 and the Council will provide a BBQ sausage or two.
The committee have agreed that we should attend this and have a stand there on the day.
Anyone who wants to join us would be warmly welcomed. Lets get our presence felt.

Special Thanks

(from Jerry Douglas)

A special thank you goes to Gary Coker, who provided a commercial
chipper machine free of charge, to enable us to clear a massive pile
of branches etc., that we had accumulated over the last couple of
Gary has also said that he will join our Society as he felt
that the camaraderie on the day was great and whilst we all worked
hard we had fun at the same time. Welcome aboard Gary.

Others on the day cleared recently rediscovered tracks near the head Spring area, which has opened up the viewing of areas not seen for many years.
We are working over the winter months this year for the first time,
and instead of the usual BBQ we will be enjoying home made soups,
bread, buns and even Mulled wine just to warm us up of course.

Look forward to seeing everyone next workday.

Loving Hamurana Springs

(From Heather Johnson)

We host a lot of international guests and encourage them to visit the
Hamurana Stream. Those who do just love the walk & peace.
Afternoon gives the best light on the stream.
Some guests then purchase a native tree which is planted in the Travellers’ Trees area of the walkway.

Special Day

(by Herma)

Last Saturday was a special day for me, as “my tree” ( a present from HSIS) was planted near the head spring. It was at the end of the HSIS work morning, in bright sunshine after days of rain, which made it even more pleasant.

Here’s my Kowhai on the way!

And this is the place she will hopefully grow for years and years
38.01.56 S – 176.13.10 E to be exact 😉

On this photo you can hardly see her leaves against the background,
but the small image shows the delicacy of leaves and flowers of a Kowhai:

A fantastic barbeque in pleasant company afterwards made this into a day not to forget!

Bird Choir

Some time ago I shot this little film with my photo camera while walking in the forest one early morning.
I uploaded it to my YouTube channel to share it with others.
Hear the birds singing, my favourite choir!
