Hidden Gems of Waitakere
Sun 2 April 2017, 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM NZST
This six-hour walk explores some of Waitakere’s less-seen tracks. We will walk through regenerating native forest to find some of the magnificent old groves. We will set off from Arataki and work our way to Huia Dam, where transport will be organised to take us back to Arataki.
Led by Fredrik Hjelm, from The Living Tree Company. Fredrik is an arborist working on a range of environmental projects, including Kauri Dieback, cone and seed collecting, canopy research and bat habitat creation.
The walk requires a good level of fitness. Bring water, comfortable sturdy walking shoes, raincoat and lunch.
MEET AT: Arataki Visitors Centre, 300 Scenic Dr, Oratia.
