Nau mai haere mai – come and join us to give some love to Te Kawau Stream by planting native trees!
As part of the ANZ Love Your Water Tour 2019, we are collaborating with Ngā Kaitiaki o te Rerenga Rauropi, Tanenuiarangi Manawatū Inc and the Manawatū River Source to Sea project to restore this important part of the awa and we would love you to come and muck in to help out.
Palmerston North city is built across the landscape of Te Kawau Stream.
Te Kawau was once the arteries of the area connecting lagoons, wetlands, scrublands, forests and the Manawatū River.
The Stream is now severely degraded, it is overgrown with weeds, is a corridor for pests, and has no habitat for native species. It has been a focus of the Palmy Plastic Pollution where huge amounts of plastic has been removed. It is our responsibility as kaitiaki to bring this stream back to life, so we are undertaking a restoration programme and want your help!
Meet at 48-50 Ellesmere Crescent, Highbury and look for the blue Sustainable Coastlines flags. We will be starting from 9:30am and finishing up by 3:00pm.
