Photo: MARTIN DE RUYTER Apple sign has new home The big apple sign outside Founders Heritage Park has been permanently placed within the park and is now part of the new permanent Harvest Land exhibit. This exhibit is about the region's agricultural history, including orchards, so the apple sign was considered a perfect fit for the exhibition. The sign was erected by the Jaycees in 1977 at Atawhai before its move to Founders Park. Challenge for teachers Outward Bound is seeking applications from teachers looking for a new outdoor challenge outside the classroom, offering $1000 scholarships to 14 teachers aged 23 and over with a minimum of two years' experience. The scholarship is to be taken on Outward Bound's eight-day Teachers Discovery course in the Queen Charlotte Sound starting on September 29. Applicants must be able to run or walk 3km in 25 minutes, and contribute $1320 to the course costs. Call 0800 OUTWARD or visit outwardbound.co.nz/teachers for more information. Tree planters wanted Volunteers are needed to help plant native trees in a restoration project in the Pelorus Rai catchment. Forest and Bird is working with DOC on replanting the site at the Ronga Scenic Reserve which is along the road after you turn off to French Pass. The trees there are known to host long tailed bats. DOC, which has done some initial planting after the land had been grazed, has set a planting day this Saturday August 31. Car pooling is being co- ordinated from Nelson. Anyone keen to come along should contact Julie McLintock ph 545 0989 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Buoy oh buoy A bright yellow and black channel marker buoy which ended up on the beach at Patons Rock in Golden Bay got there by ''a quirk of the currents'', Tasman harbourmaster Steve Hainstock said. Patons Rock resident Richard Cox alerted the Leader to the find last week. He thought it had come from Mapua but Mr Hainstock identified it is one of the ''informal markers'' from the channel at Port Motueka. ''It's the second buoy that's done that out of Motueka, the other one was a year or two years ago.'' The buoy would be trucked back to Motueka over the next few days, he said. Make teacher's day better Nominations of deserving teachers close on Friday, August 30, for OfficeMax's annual A Day Made Better programme. Fifteen teachers nationwide will win $1000 worth of OfficeMax stationery for their tireless and passionate work. Parents and students should talk to their school's principal to nominate a teacher.
