Te Ara Awataha Event
Community Regeneration Day at Jessie Tonar Scout Reserve. Since March 2019, we have been clearing invasive plant species and made good progress with planting a number of native plants on the site. We’ve also discovered that the harakeke growing there is of a high quality. We’ll continue cleaning up harakeke stands as well as clearing the wild ginger onsite. Come down and give us a hand!

About Te Ara Awataha

As part of the wider Te Ara Awataha, Kaipātiki Project is working on a community-led restoration of the Jessie Tonar Scout Reserve.

This bush-clad reserve at the end of Kākā Street is home to the source of the Awataha Stream and has deep significance to local Mana Whenua. The flow-on effects from Te Ara Awataha will be significant, contributing to numerous ecological and social improvements the whole community will benefit from for years to come.

Things to bring:
- Suitable closed-toed footwear – gumboots or boots
- Clothing appropriate for the weather
- Reusable water bottle
- Sun protection
