We have partnered with local schools via the Kāhui Ako inter-school community of learning to explore together the entwined ecological and historical significance of the OPG site.

Onehunga High School students did some amazing DNA testing of the ecologies of our stream. You can see the results in the WILDERLAB portal below. We want to get that stream health up into the green end of the dial!

We are working with archaeologists to confirm that the OPG site is the location of the whare of the first Māori King Pōtatau Te Wherowhero during his Onehunga residencies in the 1830s and 40s. See below a three part overlay of Pōtatau's whare on the green knoll at the end of Matiere Rd.
