A Kahuterawa Stream planting day is scheduled for Saturday August 16 and everyone’s invited to dig in for the cause.
The stream-side planting is part of the Lower Kahuterawa Biodiversity Project; a partnership between Horizons Regional Council, Massey University, the New Zealand Defence Force and the C.T. Keeble Memorial Forest Trust to maintain and enhance the biodiversity values of the Kahuterawa Stream.
All are invited to join Friends of Waitoetoe Park and Horizons Regional Council at Waitoetoe Park on Saturday August 23rd to plant the River walkway.
Over 1,000 native plants have been planted on the Mitchell property in Levin to protect and enhance native fish habitat under the Manawatū River Leaders’ Accord.
The plants have gone in alongside streams in the Koputaroa sub-catchment, which has been identified as a regional hot-spot for native fish and a locally valued whitebait and tuna (eel) fishery.
There's been a quiet transformation taking place along the river's edge in Palmerston North. As stop banks have been improved, so too has the walkway, signage and access; opening the door for cyclists, walkers and joggers to enjoy the river's beauty.
