Maratoto Track Clean-up

Cutting back vegetation at Maratoto

An inspection a couple of weeks ago identified that vegetation on the Maratoto track (Whangamata Track) is encroaching over the track and DOC have given permission for a cutback on Saturday 2nd of October.

If your club are users of that route, some members may be willing to assist on the day.  Please advise members of this opportunity.

Note... chainsaws can't be used under DOC H&S rules.

Cutback volunteers can register with Peter Vahry at natlpro.nzfwda@gmail.com
