Ecosystem: 
Neighbours helping neighbours create a greener environment and a more connected community in the Scroggy Stream catchment.
We primarily aim to reduce invasive weeds and pests and increase native biodiversity and improve stream quality on suburban private property in the catchment. We also have an interest in more environmentally friendly storm water management and suburban infill, reserve management, protection of noble trees whether native or exotic, urban design that encourages walking and cycling, and increasing the production of food in the catchment.
 
Location of the Scroggy Stream catchment:
Scroggy Stream is part of the greater Whau River catchment in New Lynn, Auckland. The Scroggy Stream catchment is bounded by Titirangi Rd, Pleasant Rd, West Coast Rd and Great North Road. The Scroggy Stream catchment is divided into 2 sustainable neighbourhoods (Upper and Lower) with the boundary along Rua and Croydon Roads.
