Sustainable Coastlines and Auckland Council invite you to join us on Sunday, June 10 for a day of riparian tree planting on the Papakura Stream. The Papakura Stream flows into the Pahurehure Inlet of the Manukau Harbour and planting native trees and shrubs on the banks of this waterway helps remove sediment and excess nutrients from water before it reaches the harbour, while also contributing to increased biodiversity and overall stream health.

Simply meet from 10.00am at the  end of Takanini School Rd in Manurewa and look for our blue Sustainable Coastlines flags and friendly helpers in high-vis gear. We’ll be starting from 10.00am and finishing up around 1:00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but afterwards, we’ll all come together for a tasty sausage sizzle and some delicious Phoenix Organics Drinks.
