Stream planting project, Lower HuttTe mahi whakatō tipu ki ngā manga wai, Awakairangi

As well as removing rubbish, Rata Street School are planting trees by their local awa.


Kei te kohikohi para, kei te whakatō rākau hoki Te Kura o Rātā Street i te taha o tō rātou awa.

The trees mean there’s more shade for animals and fish, and the roots of the trees will hold the bank together. This is just one of the programmes run by Mountains to Sea Wellington and local schools.
