Date: 2013 - ongoing

This project seeks to restore the weed infested riverbanks of the Weiti Stream where it flows through Silverdale Township on its way to the Harbour at Stillwater. The collaborative project is being managed by Conservation Volunteers and funded by Auckland Council and private sponsorship from local businesses including Bunnings Silverdale. Scrub Growers is undertaking specialist weed control works to reduce a diverse array of weed species down to a level that will enable planting in winter 2014, and ongoing weed maintenance by Conservation Volunteers. The nursery is also supplying all the plants for the project.
