World Wetlands Day at Devil's Bridge Wetland


Celebrate World Wetlands Day and join us for a guided walk along Devil’s Bridge Wetland (just outside of Oamaru). Along the way our speakers will tell you more about the history and management of the wetland, the flora, fauna, geology, protection and future plans. 

We are lucky to have a range of experts joining us: 

  • Landowner Aaron Meikle & Co-founder Barry Wilson
  • Sasha Morriss (Geoeducator, Waitaki Whitestone Geopark)
  • Rob Smith (Regional Representative for North Otago and South Canterbury, Queen Elizabeth the Second National Trust)
  • Mark Webb (Fish and Game Officer, Central South Island Fish & Game Council)
  • Max Crowe (Biodiversity Advisor, Waitaki District Council)

Allow 2 hours. Free. All welcome. No dogs. 

Due to Covid-19 rules, please register at
You won’t need to be vaccinated; however, there will be a limit on how many people can attend (depending on the level at the time). Please register to secure your spot, we might have to turn people away on the day if the limit is reached.  

Parking will be available at the northern end of the wetlands (follow signs and flags on the day). As the parking bays are very small, a neighbouring landowner has agreed to open up a paddock so everyone can park safely. 

Brought to you by the proud landowner, co-founder & Waitaki Whitestone Geopark, QEII National Trust, Fish and Game and Waitaki District Council.
