The Sports Shed
Coming soon ... Your group can all choose a plant or two each to take down the road and plant in your own ‘grove’. A wetland volunteer will show you where to go and give the group a tree planting demonstration. Each ‘grove’ will be marked with a wooden sign so you can revisit for years to come. Become forever a part of our beautiful valley.
Coming soon ... Nga Wai Ringa Rau / The Water of Many Hands Available from November 2021.
The Pine Valley Outdoor Centre, in conjunction with Marlborough Lines, is proud to offer our visiting groups the opportunity to join in a wetland restoration project.
Seed Balls. Wetland volunteers can facilitate your group to make ‘seed balls’ using seeds eco-sourced from the wetland itself. Children will get the opportunity to mould seed balls out of clay. We will talk about how this offers protection to the seeds and allows them to germinate at just the right time to allow the best chance of survival. Our way of giving nature a wee helping hand! We’ll stash them in our back pockets and take them down the road to the wetland and send them soaring!
