Educating our communities

Teaching our younger generation that every drop counts

Community Education

We believe that educating our communities about the importance of our waterways is SO important. This work provides an opportunity to engage with the community about the importance of preserving stream and wetland ecosystems.

We have assisted with many events including public forums, kindergarten presentations, school and university field trips and laboratory workshops.

Kaipātiki project

Kaipātiki Project is a key Auckland environmental group specialising  in bush restoration and environmental education, based on the North Shore.

The group was started in 1998, when a small band of volunteers donned their gumboots and weeded a local reserve to prevent the small forest fragment degrading further. Soon a band of merry men, women and children were regularly volunteering their time and energy restoring local bush reserves.

Education Outside The Classroom

Over the years EIA LTD have been called upon to help with education outside the classroom. 

We LOVE this work as it provides an opportunity to engage with the community about the importance of preserving stream and wetland ecosystems. 

We have assisted with many events including public forums, kindergarten presentations, school and university field trips and laboratory workshops.

Stream Gaugings – Little Oneroa Stream

Flow is probably the most important measurement to make when undertaking water quality surveys. It enables us to determine contaminant loadings of any water body and from this contaminant yields of a catchment. Stream depletion is an increasing issue for freshwater management of aquatic ecosystems.

Streamcare Monitoring

Now undertaken at Vernal Primary School, Birkdale Intermediate School, Birkenhead Primary, Windy Ridge School, Birkdale Primary School, Bayview Primary and Ako Space.
