Te Muri

Te Muri is a new Regional Reserve not yet opened to the public. I was fortunate to be able to have a walk with the Auckland Botanical Society around some of the native bush and wetland area of this land. Its a great site with huge potential and is situated between Waiwera and Mahurangi Regional park North of Auckland on the East coast. This will effectively stop this precious section of coastline from sub-division in the future. There is an extensive area of bush and we were pleased to see hard beech as we entered. There is also an area of wetland that will need to be fenced to prevent stock roaming into it. That applies to the woodland too so it will be some time before this park is open to the public.
