Volcano to Sea is an urban community catchment restoration project by NZ Landcare Trust helping the local community to improve their environment. Based in Howick, Auckland this innovative three year project aims to capture the enthusiasm and energy of the local community, enabling them to make a positive contribution to their local environment. This catchment scale project will create an ecological corridor linking a dormant volcano called Pigeon Mountain/O Huiarangi with the sea via Wakaaranga Creek, Pakuranga Stream and the Tamaki River.
