  • Warm and waterproof clothes. At least one warm top layer and a rain jacket.
  • Sun hat and sunscreen
  • Reusable water bottle (filled up and ready to go)
  • Camera (optional). We would love to see your event photos! Use the tag #loveyourwater on social media or email photos to [email protected]

For the Auckland portion of our 2016 Love your Water programme we invite you to join us for a family day of tree planting and fun at the Orangihina Park & Reserve, as part of the Matariki Celebrations in Auckland.  We’re collaborating with the Te Atatu Marae Coalition, Auckland Council and local community groups and NGOs for a fantastic day, including planting, music, food stalls and Kapa Haka throughout the day.

Simply meet on Saturday 18 June on Te Atatu Road near the reserve for the following schedule – look for our blue Sustainable Coastlines flags.  Parking is available at the Gloria Avenue roundabout entrance to the reserve.

  • Dawn Ceremony at 5:30am
  • Official Welcoming at 8:30am

There will be a Paa Harakeke Planting after the official welcoming ceremony, and you can stay for as little or as long as you like.

This is an Alcohol, Drug and Smoke Free Event
