The KCC Tauranga Branch are pretty proud to have a big legacy at the I’anson Bush Reserve in Te Puna. This reserve was gifted to the Queen Elizabeth II Trust (QEII National Trust) in 1987 by local residents Keith and Takiko I’Anson. The land when it was donated was a dairy farm and had very few trees – if you have ever visited this little reserve you will know how hard that is to believe. Over the following decades this reserve was planted out, with a lot of help from KCC!
In honour of Forest & Bird’s Centennial celebrations, KCCers got together to do a big planting day to celebrate and to leave their part of the legacy.
