Working together for healthy streams and
Project Twin Streams is a large-scale environmental restoration project. It is 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.
Project Twin Streams is a local project with regional benefits. It works with nature and with people to improve the health of our waterways and harbour.
