Our biggest fundraiser and day of public engagement of the year, a two-hour paddle along the Waitakere River. The navigable part of Waitākere River is accessible only from private land and on this one day, access will be allowed. Limited tickets are available, all gear (kayaks, paddles, life vests etc) and training provided. Suggested minimum age is 12 years. Bring cash for the bbq, home baking, locally roasted coffee and drinks afterwards.
A huge success last year, we’re repeating this once-a-year opportunity to of a one-off paddle to raise funds for Matuku Link, our conservation and education project in Bethells/Te Henga, restoring the wetland with plants from our own nursery, protecting the wildlife and rebuilding an old barn into a Wetland Education Centre. The Waitakere River flows through Matuku Link and into the unique Te Henga wetland.
Please book for your preferred slot (9 am, 11 am or 3 pm) on the website.
Hope to see you there! - Annalily & the trustees
