20.05.21 Public talk: A SOCIAL HISTORY FROM OTOTARA

Updated: May 6

The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark presents:

A SOCIAL HISTORY FROM OTOTARA


Join us to learn more about a limestone cave, a Totara tree and some surprising stories of those who have passed this way.

A presentation by Keren Mackay

Keren Mackay grew up on a small farm bordered by the Kaipara River in rural Auckland. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English and History she worked as a Librarian for a number of years, raised a family and made a garden. A move southwards makes her now a committed Otago girl and delighted to working in Heritage and making another garden. She now helps to look after Totara Estate and Clarks Mill as Kaiārāhi Āhuatanga Ōkiko or Property Lead where she continues to learn of the Tapuwae – of the sacred footprints of others who have walked this place.


6 - 7pm Thursday 20 May Oamaru Library, 62 Thames Street. Please note that events will be postponed during Covid-19 Alert Level 2 or higher!
