Kauri have long been an important part of the history of our country, contributing not only to the economic development but also to our creative output. Join The Kauri Project curators Chris McBride and Ariane Craig-Smith along with Dr. Nick Waipara, Principal Advisor Biosecurity for Auckland Council, to discuss the story of kauri, kauri dieback disease and what it means for the future of our relationship with this taonga tree.
Following the talk (weather permitting) meet at 2.45pm at Arataki Visitors Centre, Scenic Drive, for a field-trip walk to the kauri grove at the lower end of the Arataki Nature Trail walk.
