Joining generations of Glentui guardians
Mā whero mā pango, ka oti te mahi (with the red and the black the work will be complete).
Since the 1960s, four generations have worked to control invasive weeds and restore native trees in Glentui. Now, an Environment Canterbury project is continuing the kaitiaki work they began.
The Glentui-Bennetts Road site is one of three locations, totalling 24.8 hectares along the Rakahuri Ashley River, that will benefit from targeted weed control and planting of 25,860 native plants. The Glentui site covers 13 hectares, with 4500 native plants in the ground.
