Project Update – Clifton Falls Walkway Community Project
With the assistance of Waitaki Irrigators Collective’s water stewardship initiative, Waitaki Water, the Clifton Falls Walkway Community Project received funding through the Otago Regional Council’s ECO Fund .
Project Manager, Jane Strang, has provided us with this update;
Good progress has been made on the walkway which has seen the tractor and disc running over it in preparation for the grass seed to be sown. An initial 150 m has already been sprayed in readiness for the first planting session, which is scheduled to take place towards the middle of September. The next few weeks will see the removal of the the dead broom and blackberry plants. Local Five Forks School, as ambassadors of the project, will assist with the planting and the students have already started planning their pest trapping strategy and will be making their own traps.
We look forward to receiving further progress reports in due course. Keep up the great work!
Here are some photos showing the progress made on the track over the last few months;
