The first stage of the Meola creek walkway has been completed in the Roy Clements Treeway on Mt Albert Grammar School grounds. A boardwalk was built by Metrowater, and native plantings were carried out by volunteers including STEPS, under the direction of Melissa Marler.
Within a month or two of completion the boardwalk and new weir had already shown their value as these pictures taken in February 09 show. And the plants are surviving the extremes of wet and dry they experience.
The weir will enable more water to filter through to the aquifer.
Another planting programme is planned for this winter – starting on the weekend of 9-10 May 2009.
