Native Garden at the Army Museum
Sunday, November 14th, 2010
The Department of Conservation, Horizons Regional Council and the Army are supporting the Waiouru Primary School with a 5 year project to develop a native garden in the area just north of the National Army Museum. The school has two conservation leaders who are learning about the environment and teaching other students at the school. These students researched low growing native trees suitable to the area. On Friday they planted 100 red tussock plants, a type of tussock unique to Waiouru. The goal is to plant 5000 shrubs within 5 years. Other parts of the plan include picnic tables, adventure trails for orienteering – with maps available at local businesses, re-establishing wetlands and a memorial garden directly adjacent to the Army Museum.
