Kaiwharawhara Stream Restoration
Karori, Wellington

Karori, Wellington
Departs from:
Karori Cemetery Seaforth Ave Karori
Departure time:

Join us for a day of restoration mahi on the banks of Kaiwharawhara stream. We are supporting Mountains to Sea with their Te Awa Kaiwharawhara project. 

This project is planning to restore fish passageway throughout the Kaiwharawhara catchment, so migratory galaxiids (our whitebait species!) can swim upstream to find good habitat to live in as adults. This Karori Cemetery section of the stream was one area where fish passageway was blocked by a large perched culvert, but has recently been fixed with ropes that eels and galaxiids can climb. 

What to wear/bring: sturdy boots or gumboots, long sleeves and pants, a hat/beanie, a drink bottle and some food.

What we provide: gloves, tools, high-vis vests, an experienced team leader, training. Get in touch to book a free ride from the Z station on Vivian Street.
