About this Event

Hidden away in pipes below Grey Lynn, Ōpoutūkeha Cox’s Creek largely goes unnoticed. But last January, it forcefully reminded us of its presence, leaving houses and businesses flooded.

Join us for this guided walk along the route of Cox’s Creek, visiting sites where local volunteers are doing their bit for biodiversity and contributing to taming runoff. Visit Rose Road Gully, where COVID lockdowns sparked a flurry of weeding and planting, walk through the delightful Hakanoa Reserve, and finish with a rare look at a restored wetland on the former site of Cashmore’s timber mill.

This event is followed by a brief networking opportunity in the Cox’s Bay Pavilion Hall, then “Flooded Streams: Reflections 12 Months On,” a chance to hear Nick Vigar, Head of Planning for Auckland Council’s Heathy Waters team, talk about the impact of last year’s flooding and what has happened since. Nick’s talk is free, but numbers are limited. Book here.
