500 native grasses, shrubs and trees were planted at the Otipua Wetlands on an incredibly nice morning. Eight from the Boy's Brigade 3rd Timaru, with leaders Fiona Blisset and Chris Kronings,  joined 16 Club members making short work of the task.. Also digging in was Jim Garden of the Timaru Rotary Club.  This project follows a Rotary International initiative, planting 12 million trees world wide.
