May Event – Planting our Wetland

May 2nd, 2019

Join STEPS improving part of the Roy Clements Treeway!

Last year, we planted the ephemeral wetland at the Treeway’s southern end. In 2019 we will fill it out and do some releasing.

Come along, with family and friends, for a couple of hours of planting and help improve the biodiversity of the area with the support of our Local Board.

  • Saturday 18th May 2019 at 10.00am
  • @ Kerr Taylor Park (Fergusson Reserve) end of Roy Clements Treeway (southern end)

Please bring a sunhat and sunblock, a raincoat, water bottle and gardening gloves.  Bring a spade if you have one – we have some spares.

If the weather looks poor, check www.meolacreek.org.nz after 8am.

Any questions, email: contact@meolacreek.org.nz

Earlier in the year, we planted the ephemeral wetland at the Treeway’s southern end, and it now needs a little tending to keep it thriving.

E Tu Kahikatea

September 2nd, 2018

To close out the 2018 winter planting season STEPS held a ceremonial planting of some kahikatea in the new wetland.  Roy Clements (STEPS Patron), Peter Haynes (AELB Board Chair), and Wendy John (Friends of Oakley Creek Chair) all spoke and Tanya White gave a karakia. Five trees kindly donated by Friends of Oakley Creek were planted.

 

The group joined in singing a waiata by Dr Hirini Melbourne: E Tu Kahikatea. (Here are the words and music  https://www.facebook.com/notes/hirini-melbourne-syd/ngaa-waiata/163807221664/?hc_location=ufi & … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM1JzPClXDI).

Kia ora tatou  – thank you for coming on this 1st day of Spring – a very special day. Ko te ra tuatahi o Mahuru, te ra tuatahi o Koanga.
