Wairaki Stream is a rather unique stream originating in Lynfield and finishing in Lynfield Cove. A new group called Friends of the Wairaki Stream has recently been formed to protect the Wairaki Stream Catchment Area.
Some locals have already adopted a portion of the reserve for their families and are learning about weeds and how to release and protect new plantings.
They are looking for help in getting this group started and keeping it going. You don't have to be a weeder! Maybe you have skills related to IT, funding applications, or you have a fabulous BBQ technique - all skills are welcome.
Their first event is a meet and greet at the Chilli Bar in Lynfield on Friday 2nd November at 7pm to explain their purpose and gather potential volunteers to help conserve this area into the future. For more info email firstname.lastname@example.org or look up Friends of Wairaki Stream on Facebook.
