Whakaupoko has been steadily working on a project aiming to improve water quality in our local Mauku stream.
One of the first landowners to agree to participate has been the local historical St Bride’s Church, and many hours have been spent planting and maintaining a riparian strip on that property alongside the stream.
The project is funded by Auckland Council – thanks to support from our Franklin Local Board, and volunteer provide the manpower, any participating landowner needs to provide access and good communication.
With that in mind, perhaps you are someone who would like to consider the following invitation from Whakaupoko Landcare:
“Kia ora katoa
The Local Board has just allocated another generous donation of funds to Whakaupoko for purchasing plants to plant along the Mauku Stream ( and its tributaries ) for 2016
Many thanks to the local board for including Whakaupoko in this round of funding it is great to be able to continue with this project.
If you or anyone you know owns land along the Mauku stream and would be interested in protecting and planting the riparian margins would you please let me know asap. We do already have some landowners who have expressed interest in joining us this year. More would be welcome.
Heoi ano, na Deborah Savill“
