The Foundation has been brought up to full strength with the appointment of Steve Blakemore by the Masterton District Council. Signs for Rewanui and Trimble Forest have been ordered and preliminary work for fencing of the Twin Flats area completed. Tony Silbury of DOC presented his ideas on conserving the the native bush areas. The two most important actions are to fence the bush areas and control opossums.
