Pie Funds–4 October 2019

October 5, 2019

We started our 2019 track maintenance season on a high note as a small but enthusiastic team of investment managers from Pie Funds spent a day at CUE Haven upgrading an old track section.  Pie Funds is a boutique investment management fund with a strong focus on performance and client service based on Auckland’s North Shore.

The Pie Funds team comprised Mark, Rob, Sam and Simon. Also joining us today was our friend and regular volunteer Alan.

The group arrived first thing in the morning and after a welcome and morning tea, Mahrukh gave an orientation to CUE Haven.

Thomas then gave a description of the work planned for the day and a safety briefing.

The plan for the day was to upgrade an old section of track which runs by the stream. The original track and some steps were quite narrow and the plan was to widen the steps and track and retain a section along the stream.

We drove up as close to the work site as possible and then walked to the site.  The first task was to carry all the gear down to the site.

We broke into two teams.  Sam and Simon worked with Alan on the steps and Mark and Rob worked on widening and retaining the track.

The first challenge was to take out the old steps.

This involved digging around them to loosen them and then levering them out.

Once the steps were out, the new stair layout could be determined.  The new steps are wider than the old ones so the team needed to dig out some additional space on each side.

They then installed the new steps and put in side retaining walls.

They double checked to ensure that everything was even and level.

The new steps quickly took shape.

The final task was to attach the side board and fill in the gaps with soil to level the steps.

While the steps were progressing, Mark and Rob worked on widening the track leading up to the steps that Alan, Sam and Simon had been working on.

This involved cutting back the bank.

It was  challenging work but everyone kept smiling as they cut back the wall of clay.

They then moved on to the next task. The edge of the track along the stream had eroded a bit and they installed a side retaining board to improve the track appearance and safety.

The board was pegged and nailed in place to keep it secure.

The retaining boards needed go around a corner of the track to join up with another set of steps and the team had to figure out the best way to install the boards.

The team came up with a great looking corner that will also prevent further erosion.

The last step was to fill in the area to level the track and support the retaining boards.

The team’s efforts today have greatly improved the track and they should all be very proud of their efforts.

When we were finished, we gathered up all the gear and loaded it in the ute before heading back to the cottage for a late lunch.

In just a few hours, the team managed to make major improvements to the track.  Future teams this spring and summer will pick up from where we left off to continue upgrading this track.

A big thank you to our dear friend Alan for once again helping out today.  Alan – we really appreciate your time, expertise, hard work and your continued support.

Many thanks too to Rob for organizing the day and championing CUE Haven at Pie Funds.

And a special BIG THANK YOU to Alan, Mark, Rob, Sam and Simon for all their hard work and efforts today. You have all made a major contribution to the CUE Haven project and your efforts will be greatly appreciated by visitors as they comfortably walk the tracks to explore the growing native forest.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with you all and we hope that you will come back to CUE Haven soon to explore more of the property with your family and friends. And back again next year for another productive volunteer day!

THANK YOU!!

Carbon Research Study at CUE Haven

September 30, 2019

The CUE Haven Trust deed states that the property is to be used by the community for education and quiet enjoyment and we are always delighted to have students use the space for education and research.

And it is extra special when the researcher is someone who has been associated with CUE Haven as a volunteer.  Molly D’Ath had stayed and worked for a week at CUE Haven in 2014 for her Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award, gold award residential program.  Molly is now doing her Masters in Environmental Science at The University of Auckland and we were delighted when Molly contacted us to request if she could do her thesis research at CUE Haven.

Molly is investigating the relationship between soil carbon and other soil characteristics in a restored native forest. Carbon sequestration is a critical measure to assess how planting trees can impact greenhouse gases.  CUE Haven is an ideal test site for this research, because of the compact size and because we can readily identify the years in which each areas was restored from pasture to native forest.

Molly began her desk-top study on the CUE Haven site earlier this year and last Friday, she came back to CUE Haven with her supervisors, Dr Luitgard Schwendenmann, Associate Professor, School of Environment, and Dr Katarzyna Sila-Nowicka, lecturer in Geographic Information Sciences, and fellow student Emily Wexler, to get started on the field work.

The field work will involve collecting soil samples across the property.  The samples will be from historical bush on the property and each of the areas that have been planted since 2008.  As a control, samples will also be taken from open pasture on a neighbouring property to gain an idea of what the soil conditions at the beginning of restoration would have been like.

The samples will then be analysed for chemical and physical characteristics such as bulk density, grain size, pH and nitrogen and carbon content. The spatial distribution of these characteristics will then be mapped. Any differences between soil conditions in different aged stands will be examined to see if any increases in below ground carbon stocks are present as well as any trends for other characteristics.

The team arrived early morning and after introductions and morning tea, set to work.

Everyone cleaned and sprayed their shoes with Trigene before heading out to the field.

Dr Schwendenmann is an ecosystem ecologist specialising in the cycling of carbon and water in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and at the first collection site, she instructed Molly on the techniques for collecting the soil samples.

The sampling process involves recording the GPS coordinates of the site, noting the characteristics of the area (e.g., terrain, type of vegetation) and using a coring tool to obtain a soil sample from various depths up to 30 cm.

The team then moved deeper into the bush for the next sample.

Dr Schwendenmann watched as Molly collected and labelled the samples.

One of the challenges with collecting soil samples in mature bush is determining where the layer of leaf litter ends and where the soil starts.

Dr Sila-Nowicka, whose specialisation includes spatial analysis and statistics, instructed Molly on how to best capture the spatial data.

The team spent over half the day visiting and inspecting several areas on the property. Molly’s research will involve taking over 150 soil samples, so she will be back with another student over the coming weeks to complete the sample collection phase.

We look forward to supporting Molly’s data collection activities and learning the results of the research, and having Drs Schwendenmann and Sila-Nowicka back out to CUE Haven to conduct more research projects.

Forest & Bird Warkworth Branch—28 September 2019

September 28, 2019

We started our spring maintenance with our friends from the Warkworth branch of the Royal Forest & Bird Protection Society out to help us pot us seedlings and do some spring maintenance.  Members of the group have been coming annually since 2016 and today the group included Elizabeth, Lawre, Mel, Raewyn, Roger, Sally and young Millie.

It was great to catch up with the team again and we had a quick morning tea and updated then on the activities at CUE Haven and then went to work in the nursery.

We had previously set up the nursery for the group.  A big THANK YOU to Dalton’s for once again generously donating the potting mix for the day.

This year’s work focused on transplanting trees that were too small to plant this year into bigger pots so they can grow up in the nursery over the summer.  We potted up kahikatea, kohekohe, miro, nikau, puriri, and tanekaha seedlings.

The hard working team had no trouble finishing of the transplanting and even cleaned up the nursery when they were finished.

The seedlings will spend the summer in the CUE Haven nursery and will be planted in the field next winter.

While the most of the group were repotting the seedlings, Roger decided to make a head start on the other task – trimming back the vegetation that has overgrown along the main race.

Everything has been growing well during the warm winter and it was time to do some trimming and so once the team finished potting up, we drove them to the top of the property.  The plan was to start at the top of the race and work back down.

And they quickly worked down the race.

The very hard working group accomplished an amazing amount of trimming and it was then time for a relaxing lunch.

As always, it was really good having our friends from F&B Warkworth out to assist and we do so appreciate their hard work, enthusiasm and continued support.

Our many thanks to Elizabeth, Lawre, Mel, Millie, Raewyn, Roger and Sally. And a special thank you to Raewyn for organising the visit today.

Thank you all for giving up your Saturday to help out.  Not only did you all accomplish a huge amount of work, but, as always, you were also a source of excellent practical information on weed and pest management as well as best practices for planting and management.

We very much look forward to having you all back at CUE Haven this summer to see the new viewing platform.

Thank You!!

 

Ahuroa School–18 September 2019

September 20, 2019

In April this year, all the students attending Ahuroa School came out to CUE Haven for a day of outdoor learning.  The students have been studying water quality at the stream near their school and today, teacher Kevin Sutherland brought a small group of his students to explore the stream at CUE Haven so they could to do more intensive study on water quality and aquatic animals and compare the health of different waterways.

The students have been working with educator Stephanie McLeod of Whitebait Connection, an environmental education group focused on the health of New Zealand’s streams and waterways.

Stephanie came out the evening before the students’ visit and set out some fish traps in the stream so the students would be able to see what larger creatures were living in the stream.  We went out to various points along the stream and set the traps.

Stephanie brought different types of traps to catch different fish.

We kept our fingers crossed hoping that there would be some fish in the traps the next morning!

The group arrived the next morning and accompanying teacher Kevin, were students Claudia, Emily, Maddie, Meisha, Moana, Paul, Rachel, Sanjana and Santhiya.  Additionally Katherine, a parent of one of the students, joined the group to help out for the day.  Also joining us was matua Lyall, our friend and neighbor.

Our friend, Rita, from Te Aroha Pa marae, teaches Maori culture at the Ahuroa School and knew the students and stopped in briefly for a visit and led the group in a short karakia before morning tea.

Stephanie then gave the students an overview of the plan for the day and a safety briefing and Thomas added some site specific safety briefing comments.

We then walked down to where Stephanie had set the first net and waited while Stephanie went into the bush to check the trap.

We were very happy to see that we had caught three big banded kokopu, a native New Zealand galaxid fish.

Stephanie took some time to tell the students a little about the fish and its habits and showed the students how to carefully study them.

We then moved to the next trap.

In that trap we found 18 whitebait and two adult inanga.  Whitebait is a generic term for immature fish which are too small to specifically identify and in New Zealand it refers to fish of the Galaxid family.   We were very happy to see all of the fish but especially the inanga which are a declining and at risk galaxid.

The group then moved to the next trap where we found the biggest (over 22 cm) kokopu yet as well as an eel approximately 80cm long.

The eel was in no mood to stick around to be studied and vanished as soon as Kevin and Stephanie got it out of the net.

The kokopu was surprisingly calm considering it had just spent the night stuck in the net with an angry eel.  But we were able to take the time to study it further.

We then took a short walk up to explore more of the CUE Haven stream and check the other traps on the way to where the students would be doing their water quality tests.

On the way, Stephanie pointed out features of CUE Haven and the neighbouring property that affected how water flowed to the stream and could affect water quality.

The students also got a chance to make friends with a weta in one of the weta hotels along the track.

Once we got to the testing site, Stephanie gave a short talk about water quality issues and explained the tests the students would be doing.  She also took a sample of water for testing.  Stephanie explained that the students would be doing three experiments—testing water quality for oxygen, pH and phosphates and nitratres, testing clarity of the water to assess silt levels and lastly examining water samples to identify macroinvertebrates—the tiny animals that live in streams.  The amount and diversity of animal life is an indicator of the health of the waterway.

She asked the students to serve as the data recorder so that the results of the tests could be kept for future reference.  She explained that the first step was to record the time and temperature of both the water and the ambient air.

Once the temperatures were recorded it was time to test the water clarity.  Water clarity testing involved looking through a tube filled with water and measuring the distance light can penetrate to see how much silt and other material is suspended in the water.  Many aquatic creatures cannot thrive in cloudy water.

Stephanie explained and demonstrated how the test works.

The students teamed up to conduct several tests and the results of the individual tests were averaged together.

The next test was measuring the pH of the water.  This involved using test strips and interpreting the colours on the strips after they were dipped in a sample of water.

The students recorded their results and also took notes on what they were seeing.

The next experiment was to test for dissolved oxygen in the water.  Stephanie explained that high levels of oxygen mean that the water can support lots of life.

She then demonstrated how the test is performed and the students interpreted the results.

We were very happy to learn that the oxygen level in the CUE Haven stream is very high!

The next test was for nitrates and phosphates in the water.  Unlike oxygen, we don’t want to see a high reading of either nitrates or phosphates as high levels can affect the freshwater aquatic environment.  The test involves comparing two samples, the test and the control so the students had a chance to learn about that experimental technique.

We were very happy with the results. The testes showed no significant level of nitrate. A very low level of phosphates was detected, but this was attributed to the decaying organic matter in the stream.

The last test involved collecting a sample of water and leaf litter from the bottom of the stream to identify the macroinvertebrates.  Stephanie showed the students a chart which would help them with the identification process.

The group then walked to a different location downstream to do another sample and to see if there were different creatures there.

At this location the stream was more accessible so Stephanie also trained the students how to collect the samples.

The students found a variety of macroinvertebrates including damselfly nymphs, rounded snails, mosquito larvae, pond skaters and a New Zealand water spider.  We were happy to see that some of the creatures the students found are sensitive to water quality and are not found in polluted streams.

It has been amazing to see how the water quality has improved since the CUE Haven restoration program began in 2008. Thanks to all the amazing volunteers who have assisted with planting thousands of trees at CUE Haven and restoring the land and waterways, the CUE Haven stream (Wai Matauranga), is now once again thriving with aquatic life.

At the end of the session, the students helped pack up all the equipment and we went back to the cottage for lunch.

We want to thank Whitebait Connection for enabling Stephanie’s visit and a huge thank you to Stephanie.  We really enjoyed working with you and you are great with the students.  We all learned a lot thanks to you sharing your knowledge and taking the time to explain things.  We hope to see you again soon at CUE Haven educating another group of students.

We’d like to thank Lyall and Katherine for joining us today and helping out. And also thank you to Katherine for taking great pictures!

A very special thanks to Kevin for his continuing interest in CUE Haven and for once again bringing his students out for a great day of learning.

And most of all we want to thank the great group of students and budding scientists.  We enjoyed seeing you again and we were very impressed with your curiosity and enthusiasm to learn. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.  We hope that what you learned today will encourage you to pursue science studies and also make you better kaitiaki of our environment.  We look forward to having you all back for more educational visits at CUE Haven.

Wainui School—17 & 18 September 2019

September 20, 2019

Over two days, seventy-three students from nearby Wainui School came out to CUE Haven for a day of learning and exploring.  On the 17th, 37 students and ten parents joined teachers Pam Millar, Marie Mahler and Melany McDermid and on the 18th, 36 students and seven parents joined teachers Avril Richards and Shelley Ross.

Wainui School students have been coming to CUE Haven since 2016 and it was great to see some familiar faces among the accompanying teachers and parents.

On both days we got acquainted over morning tea, and Mahrukh gave an overview about CUE Haven and described the planned activities for the day and Thomas gave a safety briefing.

The plan for each day was for the students to do a variety of activities which would help them learn about nature and how they can help protect it.  We went for a nature walk so the students could learn a little bit about native New Zealand plants and animals, did a bug hunt which required the students to study and identify different insects they found and we also did activities to learn about conserving natural resources.  Because of the size of the groups, we broke each day’s group into two.  One group did the nature walk while the other did the other activities and after an hour we switched over so that all the students had a chance to do all of the activities.

Nature Walk

Thomas took the group for a walk in the bush.  Before starting out, he gave a safety briefing and talked a little bit about what they would see on the walk.  He showed them the neighbour’s paddock to give the students an idea of how CUE Haven looked ten years ago and then showed them the 2008 and 2015 plantings so that they could compare the way the trees had grown up.

The group had a chance to again see the area where a landslip occurred during a torrential rain storm in August 2016. The slip began on the neighbouring property but mainly affected CUE Haven. Thomas talked about the importance of having trees on hill slopes and showed the groups the remedial planting we were now doing in the area to stabilize the hill slope.

During the walk, Thomas pointed out some of the different planting areas to show the students how the trees were growing.  He pointed out the difference between wetland and non wetland plants so the students could identify the difference and also explained how our plantings had helped water quality in both the CUE Haven stream and downstream in the Araparera River and the Kaipara Harbour.

We continued our walk through the bush and the students got a chance to see many different native trees.

And they also saw the weta hotels that had been made by the students from Westlake Girls High School, and these hotels were now habitats for native tree weta.

One of the things we want the students to learn and experience at CUE Haven is the importance of slowing down and connecting with nature and appreciating the natural world.

At the halfway point on the walk, Thomas asked the students to stop, be still, close their eyes and focus on their breath for ten seconds.  He then asked them to do it again but this time to concentrate on what they were hearing, feeling and smelling and to experience nature with their eyes closed.

The students then had to describe what they heard and felt. They heard birds, the stream flowing and the wind and smelled the fresh forest scent.

The students also got a chance to look out over the Araparera River and Kaipara Harbour and they could observe the connection between the CUE Haven waterways and the harbour and better appreciate how improving water quality at CUE Haven was helping the harbour.

The group then headed down to the big puriri tree that our pest control efforts had saved from possum browsing.   That tree has become a home for kereru and a lot of karaka are growing up under the tree after the kereru have dropped seeds.  The students got a chance to see how everything in nature is interconnected—with our pest control efforts we saved the puriri tree, which attracted birds, in particular the kereru, who are in turn creating more forest by spreading the big seeds.

Thomas reminded the students of the challenges that native New Zealand plants and animals faced because of introduced pest plants and animals.  He demonstrated the tracking tunnels we use to monitor pest populations and the students got a chance to interpret some prints that animals had left on the tracking tunnel cards we had collected in the field.

Thomas also showed the students the traps we use to control pests.

We finished up with a walk through the wetlands and then headed back to the nursery for the next activity.

Invertebrate Study

We had placed pitfall traps in the orchard overnight so that the students would have some specimens to study.  Mahrukh explained how to use the traps and collect the bugs for study.

The students broke into groups around the work stations we had set up around the traps.  Assisted by an adult, they examined the creatures they found in the traps and used magnifying glasses so that they could study the creatures from all angles.  Using interpretive charts, they identified as many of the specimens as they could.

The students got very creative in finding places to look for bugs.  In addition to the spiders, slaters and beetles they found in the traps, the students also explored the trees and rocks in the area and found snails, slugs and skinks.

And then there were the macroinvertebrates to be discovered in the old water trough.

Sustainable Living

The students also did an interesting activity about resource depletion to help them better appreciate how to conserve our planet’s resources. The game generated a lot of interesting discussion.

The students broke into groups of six or seven and each group was assisted by a parent or teacher.  Each group had a bowl full of small stones and an empty bowl, a pair of chopsticks, a fork, a teaspoon and a tablespoon.  The students were told that they were to take turns moving the stones from one bowl to the other, the first person was to use only their little fingers, the second the chopsticks, the third the teaspoon, the fourth the fork, the fifth person the tablespoon and the last person could scoop up stones with their whole hand.

Mahrukh counted time as the students took turn moving the stones using their “tool.”

They were told to raise their hands as soon as they emptied the bowl.

Mahrukh then asked the students to imagine that the stones represented the Earth’s natural resources and their little fingers, chop sticks, forks and spoons represented the technical progress that has enabled humans to use resources more rapidly over the ages.

Mahrukh then discussed how excessive use of all our natural resources would mean that there could be none left for future generations.

The students then spent some time in their groups discussing different ways to conserve resources – by Rethinking, Reducing, Reusing, Restoring and Recycling.  They wrote down ideas for things they can do at school and home while the adults facilitated the discussions.  Although at first the students thought the activity was a game and the objective was to empty the bowls as quickly as possible, they realized the importance of what the stones represented and the risk to future generations of over consumption and they had some serious discussions of what they could do individually and as a society to reduce consumption and conserve resources.

After lunch each student was given a small lolly.  Mahrukh told the students about the famous Stanford Marshmallow experiment and the benefits of delayed gratification.  The students were asked to demonstrate their self control and hold on to the lolly and only eat it once they returned to school.  Although there would be no second lolly when they got to school, we hope that students would learn to think about how to control impulsive behaviour through innovation and collaboration, and discussed some ideas.  Students offered interesting suggestions – hiding the lolly in their shoe, giving it to their friend for safe keeping, etc.

At the end of the day before the bus came, Mahrukh did an exercise with the students on identifying native New Zealand bird calls.

Although the native bird population at CUE Haven has increased significantly since we started restoring CUE Haven, we are hopeful that sometime in the future all the native birds will be thriving here.

We really enjoyed spending time with the Wainui students and we want to thank Pam for once again making all the arrangements for the visit and for championing CUE Haven at Wainui School.  And a big thank you the teachers and parents who helped out.  And a special thank you to Chloe Lodge for sharing some of her fantastic pictures.

And a BIG thank you to the students!  We really enjoyed meeting you and working with you and hope you enjoyed your visit as much as we did.  And thank you all very much for the koha to CUE Haven.  It is really thoughtful and much appreciated, and it will help ensure that your native forest reserve remains a well maintained park for you and the whole community to freely access over the years.

We hope you will come back to CUE Haven with your families to explore more of the property and see how the forest is growing. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Visit by Unitec Ecology Students—3 September 2019

September 3, 2019

Since 2010, Mel Galbraith, senior lecturer at Unitec in Auckland, has been bringing students in his Ecological Restoration class to CUE Haven to give the students a chance to do some first-hand observations of a restoration project in progress.  Because we have been planting since 2008, they can readily see different stages in the regeneration process and learn about the issues and challenges associated with each phase of the work.

Today Mel and Head of Department of Environmental and Animal Sciences, Dr. Dan Blanchon brought students Aaron, Abhinav, Benjamin, Beth, Greyson, Laura, Lewis, Lou, Manisha, Mel, Morgan, Naoki, Naru, Paul, and Poonam for a discussion and tour.  It was a rainy day with the forecast for heavier rain but the visit went ahead.

We started out with Mahrukh telling the students the history and objectives of the CUE Haven restoration project and plans for the future.

Thomas explained what we would be seeing and doing on the walk and gave a safety briefing.

We then headed out for the walk.  Thomas led the group and pointed out a number of features of the property and explained some of the challenges of the restoration project.  We discussed weed and pest control and the positive effect that pest management has had on native bird and animal life.

We visited the area where we had a slip in 2016 and discussed the causes of the slip and the effect of the remedial steps we have taken since then.  The students were able to see how soil disturbance has affected the growth of both natives and exotics as well as invasive weeds.

We carried on almost to the top of the property with frequent stops along the way to observe various aspects of the regenerating bush.  We took a small detour to see the Maori rock pools which are evidence of past human habitation on this site.

We walked near the boundary with the neighbouring farm so that the students could see the impact of different land uses on the landscape and how farming practices have affected the land and our activities at CUE Haven.

The students got a chance to see a variety of stages of forest growth on the walk.

And wetas in the weta hotels.

They took some time to identify unusual plants and even identified a pest weed that we will be eradicating.

Mel also noticed and identified some gorse spider mite, a natural biological control against the invasive gorse plant.

As always, we had a very enjoyable visit with the Unitec students.  We learn a lot from these visits and are always impressed with the enthusiasm and varied interests and knowledge of the Unitec students and staff.

Our many thanks to Mel and Dan for their continued support and to Mel for organising the visit.  And also a big thank you to the students for their enthusiasm and interest in the project.

It was a pleasure meeting all of you and we wish you all the very best in your endeavours and we hope you will all come back to visit us again soon!

Community Planting Day—23 June 2019

June 23, 2019
tags:

We finished up our 2019 planting season on a high note with an extra special planting day.

Valentina and Ben have been CUE Haven supporters and today they brought a group of their friends out to help plant some trees.  The very enthusiastic group arrived at around nine and included Ben, Brooklyn, Caroline, Emily, Gary, Grace, Greg, Jaime, Kade, Kyra, Laetitia, Molly, Natascha, Rachel, Sloan and Valentina.  Hansa, who has been volunteering regularly at CUE Haven also joined us for the day.

Mahrukh gave a welcome and an introduction to the CUE Haven project and Thomas gave a description of the work planned for the day and a safety briefing.

The plan for the day was to do some infill planting of kowhai, kohekohe, taraire and totara as well as some cabbage trees.

We took a short walk up to the planting site.  The weather forecast did not include rain but as soon as we headed out, a light shower started, but fortunately didn’t last long.

Once we were all on site, Thomas gave a planting demo and reminded the group of safety issues.

The group then went to work.

The planting required a lot of teamwork!

The area was a bit slippery after the rains but despite the challenges they were right at home in the bush!

In no time, the group managed to plant all the trees we had for them and it was time to get cleaned up.

They collected all the pots, trays and other gear and brought it back to the main road.

And got cleaned up in order to enjoy a nice snack.

We then drove the group up to the top of the property so they could enjoy the views and see where the viewing platforms will be built.

Several of the group walked back down via the main walking track and got a chance to see a bit more of the property.

It was a nice way to wrap up a fun and productive planting day.

Our many thanks to Hansa for once again giving up her weekend and coming out to help and straighten up the nursery.

And our heartfelt thanks also to Valentina and Ben for organizing the day and for their ongoing support of our efforts at CUE Haven and sponsoring the plants today.

And a BIG thank you to everyone who came along to help out today.  We really enjoyed meeting you all and spending time with you.  We appreciate all your hard work–the trees you planted will live for many, many years. You all have made a major contribution not only to CUE Haven and the community, but also to the planet.  We hope you will keep coming back to see how your trees are growing and to enjoy your CUE Haven forest reserve.

Thank You!! Thank You!!
