This is the end point and highlight of the Leith Expo-dition at Woodhaugh Gardens.

Visit our Lab on the River to find out what fish live in the Leith and its tributaries, how to plant waterways effectively, and discover biological clues to Woodhaugh Gardens’ past life as a wetland. 

See live critters and native plants that grow near freshwater streams, rivers and ponds, try on our scientist dress ups, check out freshwater poster displays, and chat with scientists about watery things, including our festival guests Dr Mike Joy and Stella McQueen.

At this final stop there will be Cooke Howlison and their free BBQ in support of Kiwi Guardians Wild Dunedin Medal programme.  A coffee van will be available for a hot drink.
