About The Event
We are working on the edge of the Avondale Stream (Wai Tahurangi) and a small tributary stream. There is some well-established native planting that we did some years ago but there is invasion by privet and honeysuckle and it needs some infill planting to fill a few holes. We will take the opportunity of the soft damp soil to remove small weed species and avoid the use of herbicides beside our waterways.
Come and join us for a sociable morning with other volunteers doing some work to restore our waterways and provide habitat for our native species.
Meet at the end of Heaphy Street in Blockhouse Bay, there is plenty of parking on the street.
We provide all the tools, gloves, plants, wheelbarrows etc. Juice, water, and biscuits will be provided.
It's ok to bring the kids but we are working beside an open stream so it's not suitable for very young kids.
The Whau River Catchment Trust is working together for healthier streams and rivers through community participation and kaitiakitanga.
