We had another visit today from KKC and their parents, the focus for the trip was the planting of 30 Podocarps and then it was on to the identifying the pests of Paremata Flats and the traps we use to catch them. We then moved on to dissecting the rats and stoats, interesting the stoats had empty stomachs and to finish the day the children iced some homemade cookies and decorated them with Chocolate buttons, 100’s of thousands and marshmallows.

I would like to thank Vikki from KCC for organising, Johnnie Fraser a Biology teacher from Nelson College for the dissecting of the rodents and for making it so interesting and to Anne Harvey who made all the cookies in the shapes of birds etc and capped off a great visit for all.
