Ngā mihi nui

The Tree Council Board

Please join The Tree Council for its Annual General Meeting followed by a NZ National Film Unit archive film and speakers.

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT WILL ONLY TAKE PLACE IF AUCKLAND IS IN ALERT LEVEL 1

Kauri, the extraction industry and the culture that surrounded it has shaped New Zealand’s and west Auckland’s history.

Come along to hear Dr Nick Waipara and historian Sandra Coney explain the ecological and cultural history shown in the 1978 short film The Kauri. This documentary looks at the ancient conifer and its relationship with people. Archive footage evokes the pioneer days: kauri dams, woodsmen dwarfed by felled trunks, and Dalmatian gum hunters scaling sky-scraping trunks.

All are welcome, refreshments provided.

Bookings are strictly limited. This event will book out quickly.

Cost of $20 per person (plus booking fee) is for membership of The Tree Council for 2020/21. Concessionaires can request a refund of $5 to the reduced rate at the door. Payment of membership via this event also includes entry to the event.

PLEASE NOTE NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED IF THE EVENT IS CANCELLED. YOUR PAYMENT IS YOUR MEMBERSHIP OF THE TREE COUNCIL FOR THE YEAR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

This event is part of the Auckland Heritage Festival http://www.heritagefestival.co.nz/

Thanks to Archive NZ, Robin Kewell from FLICKS Titirangi, Jolie Hutchings from Lopdell Precinct and our speakers Sandra Coney and Dr Nick Waipara.
