About this Event

The Pest Free Waitākere Ranges Alliance and Ark in the Park present a short series of nature talks and the chance to head out on a guided walk of the newly reopened Cascade Kauri walk.

Nature talks are from 1-2 pm followed by afternoon tea until 2.30 pm. The guided walks of Te Piringa/Cascade Kauri start at 2.30 pm.

Feel free to join us for just the talks or the walk or both!


Nature Talks 1-2pm

John Sumich – From the ridges to the sea; the legacy of the Waitākere Forest & Bird Branch. John will share some of the amazing work achieved by the Waitākere Forest & Bird Branch, including how dedicated volunteers worked to realise their dream of protecting what is now Ark in the Park.

Sam Lincoln – Standing on the shoulders of giants; Ark in the Park today. Following John’s talk about the origin of the Ark, Sam will talk about where we are today, what the future may look like, and how you can join or support the team to ensure the legacy continues.

Hear from Lara Clarke from Auckland Council about work underway to develop Shoreline Adaptation Plans, which will shape how council-owned places by the shore will be managed in the face of climate change, coastal hazards and flooding, over the next 100 years. Help shape a legacy for the future of the coastline you love by having your say. Tell us what you value about your local coast, as part of the consultation for a plan being developed for Whatipū to South Head.

Afternoon Tea 2-2.30pm

Guided Walk of Te Piringa/Cascade Kauri Walk 2.30pm onwards.
