With the continued work in restoring the water catchment at Smiths Creek on the Hereweka block the site has been fenced off from the main farm. This has allowed the plant restoration to continue without having to worry about stock eating the plants. What it has also created is a contained area free of stock which will allow owners to exercise their dogs. However, it does not open up the rest of the property for dogs which is presently closed to the public for the traditional lambing period. The Trust have decided to trial the fenced Smiths Creek area as a place where people may bring their dogs, but like everything it comes with some responsibilities listed on the attached signage. The Trust hopes people will respect the area and the hard work being undertaken at Smiths Creek. Enjoy it and play nice.
