Exploring Grey Lynn’s lost awa – Opouteka Cox’s Creek and Edgar’s Creek
Where are Grey Lynn’s streams? During the anniversary weekend floods they were all too visible as floodwaters inundated homes, but for most of the time they go unseen – underground or tucked away. With the accelerating effects of climate change they are likely to make there presence felt again and again.
As part of the Auckland Climate Festival we’ll be exploring two of these hidden awa – Opouteka Cox’s Creek and Edgar’s Creek – looking at ongoing habitat restoration work and exploring how changes to the environment could have a positive effect on the impact of climate change, native biodiversity and community connectedness. The hīkoi will take a couple of hours, with frequent stops to hear from people who are having a positive impact on these awa.
