Waitakere Book Launch of Life in the Shallows – by the National Wetland Trust of New Zealand ceo Karen Denyer on Sunday 24th of July at 10 am. Hot drinks and nibbles will await our guests, before Karen will start her talk about the people, the work and the behind-the-scenes part of this beautiful book on wetlands, written with Monica Peters. This is followed by a Q&A session and the the presentation of a copy of Life in the Shallows to our Matuku Link trustees for their wetland restoration work. Of course there is an opportunity for your own copy to be signed by Karen!
Matuku Link trustees John Staniland and John Sumich will be giving a guided tour over the wetland parts of the Matuku Link property, where you might even see some of our resident local wetland inhabitants – tuna (eel), pateke (brown teal) or our famous namesake the matuku (bittern).
