Mountain to Sea Walk – October 2018

October 2nd, 2018

On Saturday the 13th of October, STEPS will be walking the third and final stage of the Meola Waititiko Mountain to Sea Walk, from Western Springs to Meola Reef on the Waitamata!

This is following on from the first and section walks we did in March from the summit of Owairaka Mt Albert to Kerr Taylor Reserve, and from Kerr Taylor to Rawalpindi. Its a chance to learn about the Meola Creek Waititiko and its catchment and aquifer, while stretching your legs in good company. Do come and join us!

Details of the walk can be found here.

Its about 3km of distance in total, and we will be taking our time. This is replacing the regular working bee for the month, as we did so much hard work planting in July and August.  Kids and whole family welcome.

We have chosen to start the walk from Western Springs rather than Rawalpindi, to cut out a large section of the walk that is far from the creek and on roads.

Meet at 10am on Saturday 13th October on the eastern side (next to the carpark) of the Western Springs Garden Community Hall which is on Great North Road.  Parking in the car park, of course!

For those driving or biking to the start, there will be cars at the end to shuttle walkers back to their cars or bikes, but of course you’ll need to walk back from Meola Reef to the Meola Road carpark.

If weather looks poor, see  on the day at 8am to check for cancellation.
You can download this flyer to send to your friends and post in your local park. We hope to see you there

June Working Bee – Follow Up Planting

STEPS at Norgrove Reserve

November 13th, 2017

Saturday 11th November’s working bee was on a pleasant morning, at Norgrove Ave close to Chamberlain Park.  This is a relatively neglected part of the stream, this area has no walking track or simple access, but is a fairly broad riparian area with lots of potential.

We tackled an area of climbing asparagas which is present in the much of the area.

A big thanks to Volunteers Sean and family, Jeanette, and STEPS Members Sandra, Mac, Liz and Sel.
