Project Twin Streams

Project Twin Streams is a large-scale environmental restoration project working to improve water quality in Waitakere streams by revegetating 56 kms of streambanks with native trees and shrubs, and purchasing properties within the flood plain for removal. This stabilises the banks from erosion, creates a cool, shaded environment for ecology to thrive and filters toxins entering the streams.

Through its unique approach, Project Twin Streams engages local residents in the project through partnering with local community organisations to deliver the planting program.

Mt Victoria Bush Regeneration Group

We are a group of local Mt Victorians who look after a patch of regenerating bush on the northern slope of Mt Victoria. We meet once a month for plant care, and during winter plant natives.

Last Sunday of every month at 10am meet at the map on Moeller meadow off Moeller-Palliser Road entrance to Mt Vic town belt. Let us know if you are coming

A highlight in the last year was getting some steps in the slippery slope by the gum tree and these have planted up well with our great wet summer of 2017. A much more user friendly place. 

Growing Places Charitable Trust

The Trust was established to facilitate the use of ecological restoration in rail, road and walking corridors, in order to achieve both transport and ecological objectives. Examples of the sorts of projects that we will be focused on are green walls to reduce tagging on structures; replacing weeds with easy-care natives to reduce weed control costs and provide amenity and habitat values; improving the appearance of areas to reduce litter and dumping; and using vegetation to reduce run-off into streams and the coast.
