Te Wai Ōrea / Western Springs wetland walk, with Ben Goodwin
Friday 2 February 2024, 6:15pm - 7:15pm
On World Wetlands Day (02 Feb) we’ll be kicking off our 2024 events schedule with a guided wetland walk with our favourite guest presenter, Ben Goodwin. Ben is a self-taught botanist with a passion for hidden native habitats and his talks are always entertaining and packed with fascinating factoids. Unbeknownst to many people, Te Wai Ōrea / Western Springs Park contains small and fragile remnants of a range of ecosystem types, including a patch of wetland which Ben will guide us around.
Numbers are limited to 18, so please ensure you Book on Eventfinda as soon as possible to reserve your place.
Note: There will be an extra 15 minutes at the end of the walk for Q & A.
Meet at the spot indicated by the red dot on the map below - look out for the Urban Ark flag!
Getting there: Walk, scoot, ride or catch the bus, but if you need to drive you’ll find parking on Great Nth Road and in the car park by the Western Springs Garden Community Hall.
Consider bringing: Sturdy closed boots or shoes, long sleeves (in case of mozzies), sun hat, sunblock, water bottle (although there are water fountains in the park).
