Of course our main aims at Matuku Link are protection of all our native flora and fauna, through best practice pest control (thank you trappers, baiters, weeders and sprayers!) and restoration of our wetland with our eco-sourced plants grown in our nursery (thank you Waitakere Rivercare).
However, “Inspiration and Education” are the two other goals we aim for. We have guided tours, info panels along the route, self-guided walks and of course visiting school groups – hoping to inspire everyone to take some kind of environmental action.
Sometimes inspiration and education come together, as is the case with our mage-mural – a project by professional artist, conservationist and volunteer Derek March. It’s not finished yet, but isn’t it looking amazing????
