A few weeks back the Wanaka Community Workshop hosted Wanaka Backyard Trapping – an agency promoting the trapping of pests by local land owners.
Wanaka Backyard Trapping introduced the concept of a trap library – traps that people may borrow, much like people borrow books from the library.
The traps have been a roaring success. All have been borrowed and are now out do their bit to restore our natural environment.
The team at the MenShed, who also operate from the Wanaka Community Workshop, are currently building a “Trap Shed” to house the library.
The “Trap Shed” will enable people to borrow and return traps at times convenient for them.
The “Trap Shed” will be located at the Wanaka Community Workshop.
