Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

Matapouri's summer beach and estuary cleanup, 2007-08

Who's going to be at Matapouri on the long weekend? If you are in the area, Friends of Matapouri are holding their second Environment Day - a day of sharing information about all those great things that are happening right here on the coast.

Sparky the Kiwi from the Whangarei Bird Recovery Centre will be on show with his keeper Robert. If you have never had the opportunity to be real close to a Kiwi and see why we want to look after them so much - this could be the moment you have been waiting for.

That's just a start of some of the amazing people (and animals) who will be around. Ingrid Visser who is famous for her knowledge and involvement with Orca will be there with stunning photos.

Tutukaka Land Care, DoC, Whangarei City Council, Northland Regional Council will all be putting on displays and be there to answer questions. See what weeds and pests look like and how to deal with them, what about the state of septic tanks and waste water systems on the coast - come and learn how to keep them in pristine shape so maybe we can swim in the estuary over the summer and even eat the shellfish.

It all kicks along at 10am until 2pm at the Matapouri Hall on Saturday 24 October.

At 1pm we will be having 15 minute talks and presentations (with any questions you might like to ask) by a whole range of interesting people. Come and hear about the recent kiwi release in our area and what you can do to make our environment safe for them.

Hey did I mention all this is free.

Hope to see you there.
