The Lower Meola Restoration Project (LMRP) started in late 2010, is a community led partnership between the Albert-Eden Local Board and local groups keen to restore the stream habitat within Meola Creek at Point Chevalier.
The primary objective of the LMRP is to encourage active participation of local community groups to enhance the streams ecosystem primarily through planting of New Zealand natives along the stream edge.
Priority for restoration was given to the lower section of Meola Creek following the development of the Meola Creek Watercourse Management Plan (WMP).
To date more than 150 volunteers have planted over 4000 native species and significantly reduced the amount of noxious weeds along the creek.
If you would like further information or wish to become involved in the project please contact Katherine Read, Auckland Central Wai Care Co-ordinator. Email: Katherine@morphum.com Phone: 09 377 9779

To plan your swimming at the beach (or to impress your visitors most effectively), you can see the next few days time tides at MetService.
Or, you can download and/or print tide charts for the whole year from the LINZ website. (but watch out as it doesn't account for daylight saving)
Or, if you are heading out on the water the best option is Swell Map which combines wind tides and swell (for Musick Point but close enough)
See the weekly test results on the Council website
