Ngongotaha Stream Restoration Project

On Saturday 6th April Gavin is asking for a good club turnout for the Stream Team at Ngongotaha Stream.  No tools are required.  Meet at the container at 0900. There will be a BBQ lunch following.  Gavin reports many good fish holding in the area, so perhaps bring your rod for some after lunch fishing!

The Ngongotaha Stream Restoration Project was officially declared open in August of 2001

Since then, many thousands of volunteer hours have been expended, creating a delightful bush walkway that meanders for some four kilometer's upstream of the Ngongotaha township.

Thousands of native trees, shrubs, ferns and grasses have been planted, turning a former wasteland into a miniature forest that is now home to an increasing variety of native bird life.

It's an ongoing project. Every week, dedicated volunteers are contributing time and effort to maintain and build on the results achieved over the last two decades. Existing pathways are maintained, trees are pruned, and pest weed infestations are controlled.

Annually, hundreds of native trees and shrubs are planted throughout the growing season and deep rooting native grasses are planted on the stream banks to help control erosion.

This project is labor intensive and relies on volunteers giving of their time and expertise.

Can You help?
