Maungawhau/Mt Eden: All at Sea with the SEA?

How should we care for our volcanic cones? Take a guided walk with heritage parks campaigner Kit Howden, chairperson of FoM, during the Auckland Heritage Festival. Meet us at the old kiosk (former Langtons restaurant on Maungawhau).

The walk will go through the Friends' ecological restoration project in Batger Quarry, and along the southern slope of the maunga up to the summit.

Kit will discuss the proposed Significant Ecological Area (SEA) zoning for Maungawhau under the Unitary Plan, and the competing demands on our volcanic cones for open space, tourism, biodiversity and heritage preservation.

The walk ends with refreshments in the old kiosk.
This is a dog-free walk. Not suitable for children.
You can download a map of the maunga here.
