What: An audio guided walk telling the story of the restoration of the Awataha stream and the ways it has and will transform Northcote. Come with us on a journey along the new waterway route and learn how it was dreamed up, and what we hope it will be.
In late 2022 the waters will first flow the length of the new Te Ara Awataha greenway. To celebrate this moment Kaipātiki Project restoration activator Neil Henderson shares the stories of how the stream has been brought back into the daylight and guides you in spotting the secrets of its ecology, the species he hopes to see make the water their home, and the ones he’s hoping we avoid – like the riverbed shopping trolley.
Discover the places where you can see this stream and imagine its future with us.
Note: The audio file and map have been updated with the opening of Te Ara Awataha Greenway
