Meola Reef Day


Meola Reef Community Picnic

Grey Lynn 2030 are invited to a community picnic at Meola Reef, organised by Auckland City Council, on Saturday 21 March 2009, 1-5pm.

There will be musical performances and presentations from local groups as well as activities for adults, young people and children. Learn about fresh water invertebrates in the stream with Wai Care, go on a tour of the reef, meet Fairy Clare and find out about how you can volunteer in and around Meola Reef and the creeks. Pack a picnic lunch, water and sunscreen and celebrate your community and environment at the reef.

If it rains, the picnic will be delayed to Saturday 28 March. Due to limited parking near the reef, walking or cycling is recommended. There will also be a free bus operating throughout the afternoon to and from Meola Reef, Pt Chevalier and Westmere.
