    Event description

    Join us in celebrating Matariki, the Māori New Year! On the 28th of June, the cluster of stars, Mānawatia a Matariki, reappears. Matariki is a time to come together and connect with your whānau and home.

    This year, to celebrate, we are hosting a series of night tours at our local reserves. Our tour will begin with Muriwai Junger, who will introduce us to Matariki and the significance of the stars in Māori culture and our wildlife. Following this, we will explore the fascinating nocturnal creatures in our reserves, including insects, bugs, aquatic life such as fish and eels, and other night-dwelling animals. These creatures, often unseen during the day, come alive at night. At the end of the walk, we will conduct an insect survey using a light sheet.

    This 1-hour guided night tour at our local park concludes with a cup of hot chocolate to warm up. This event is suitable for all ages 5 years and older.

    Come and experience the magic of Matariki and our reserves with us!
