Matuku Link joins World Wetland Day, with a host of activities on Saturday 12 February from 10am to 2pm. Stalls with food, coffee, guided walks, bird talks, bug hunts… and the opportunity to see the changes since we bought the property in 2016 and have spent over fifteen thousand volunteer hours improving the place, with two new boardwalks and a Wetland Education Centre. All free and all welcome.
Try to find one of our wandering Pateke (brown teal), spot a secretive spotless crake or even our namesake Matuku (bittern), or join one of our guided tours on bugs, birds, eels or flora & fauna.
All day market with gifts, food, art, crafts, information and entertainment from Forest & Bird Waitakere, Birds New Zealand, The Entomological Society, Whitebait Connection, Kauri Rescue, Auckland Council Biodiversity, Auckland Zoo, PestFreeWaitakereRangesAlliance (PFWRA), Serenity - candles & soaps, Christine Rose Ceramics, Mama Soto - liniments & infusions, Sue Beesley’s Honey, Bethells Beanz coffee, home baking, BBQ - (vegan and non-vegan) and much more.
We’d love you to join us on this special day. 111 Bethells Road, Te Henga, West Auckland. See you there for a fun filled family day.
