Join Waikato KCC and visit Whangamarino with someone who loves wetlands.
We are excited to have David Lawrie of the National Wetland Trust, to take us to explore the Whangamarino wetland in the Waikato, North Island’s second largest. This is a joint activity with KCC members from the Waikato branch and is suitable for all school age members. See the way the water levels are controlled, perhaps spot a bittern hiding in the reeds, learn why wetland plants are different and find out why our endangered wetlands are such an important part of our natural world.
Meet a couple of hundred metres down Island Block Road just off SH1. This is just north of the old Meremere Power Station. Allow about half an hour (36 km) from the Takanini on ramp. We will travel in convoy from there.
To join this event, please bring an adult who is responsible for you!
