Korimako Corner is at the Clyde Railhead end of the Otago Central Rail Trail, at the corners of Springvale Road and State Highway 8.
This photo was taken in 1981. Korimako Corner is the area marked in red.
In August 2019 a section of our original plantings (approximately 100 plants) was temporarily dug up. This was to lay a pipeline through the site as part of the CODC Clyde/Alexandra water upgrade. Interestingly, after 7 days above ground, the plants (mostly) are actually doing very well. Perhaps something to do with the compacted ground being loosened up…..
We have not done this alone. We are grateful for the support from DoC and the hundreds of volunteer hours given to us from the Clyde Lions, the ‘public day’ planters, HNHT volunteers and last but not least our ‘summer waterers’, who are vital to getting our larger shrubs and tree species through the summers while they establish themselves.
