Cathedral Cove Walk and Weed


Join us for a walk and weed along the wonderfully scenic Cathedral Cove track in Hahei.

This event is part of Mental Health Awareness Week, so we’re aiming to get you out experiencing nature – doing something positive for the environment as well as your health!

Expect to be walking for around an hour in each direction, depending on the number of weeds we need to stop and attack along the way. Participants will need to wear good walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. All equipment will be provided but please bring a small back-pack with a packed lunch and plenty of water.

Please note, due to the use of herbicides, the event will need to be postponed or cancelled if it is wet.

If you are interested in attending this event please register your interest by contacting Ali McDonald: almcdonald@doc.govt.nz.

Thursday 11 October

Today is a very good day for fishing, eeling and crayfishing, and a good day for planting which means it’s a great day to Be Active! Getting outside and exercising is good for your overall health and wellbeing and strengthens your connection with nature.

Remember to encourage people to be as physically active as their fitness and mobility allow. You don’t have to run a marathon to be active!

Friday 12 October

This is the fourth night of the lunar month. Today is a good day to rekindle your connections with nature, re-tell stories with whānau and give back.

Nature provides for us – it gives us everything we need to not only survive but thrive. We, in turn, have a kaitiaki/guardianship role to give back to nature for future generations.
