To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week, The Island Bay Community Center and the Manawa Karioi Society would like to invite you to a community picnic at the Manawa Karioi Ecological Restoration Project.
The theme for the Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘Let Nature in’ so we have found a picturesque flat grassy spot that is just 5 minutes walk from the Tapu te Ranga Marae carpark in Island Bay.
Pack a picnic of delicious snacks, gather your family and friends and join us for our community picnic in the regenerating native forest of Manawa Karioi. Children and dogs on leads are welcome. Meeting at 2 pm at the interpretation shelter in the Tapu te Ranga Carpark and we will have signposts for any late arrivals. Depending on interest we can lead a bush walk on the tracks after the picnic around 3.30pm.
Sunday 14th October, starts at 2 pm - 5 pm
Meet at the Tapu te Ranga Marae carpark and at 2 pm, walk up to the picnic area.
Sunday 21st October - 2pm - 5pm
