AGM and guided geology walk on Maungawhau

Our AGM this year will be held on Saturday 25 July in the Gallery Room at Eden Garden. Meet outside the entrance at 1:00pm for free admission to the garden. There's plenty of parking in Omana Ave if you're coming by car.

The brief AGM will be followed by a guided walk led by renowned geologist Bruce Hayward, co-author of Volcanoes of Auckland. He'll show us some of the volcano's internal plumbing visible in Eden Garden, and then proceed up through the top gate to the summit of the maunga.

The walk will take from one-and-a-half to two hours, with plenty of time to come back down through Eden Garden for afternoon tea before it closes at 4:00pm.

Everyone is welcome - especially those who might like to join our Tuesday weeding group, or help with advocacy for Auckland's maunga and help shape our future as a volunteer group. This year our long-standing chair, Kit Howden, will be standing down. So we need new people and fresh ideas.

For more information about the AGM, please email us or call April on 027 217 3540 / 09 6310057.
