Newmarket stream restoration project

Our goal is to unite our community in working to clean our stream and ultimately our harbour, combat pest plants and pest animals,  plant many trees,  and create an oasis of bird and plant life in the city.

What We Do


Pest control

We do pest control in the restoration area using Good Nature traps, as well as traditional traps and bait stations maintained by the community members.

Weed and trash removal

Te Ngahere leads our weed control work according to a 5-year plan to restore the environment. We’ve removed a lot of household trash from the site and trash is removed by volunteers during planting events.

Planting

We’ve had 3 planting events so far, in 2018, 2019 and 2020. We’ve planted 4000 trees.

We organise social gatherings around our planting events, as well as educational events for the community.

Restoration Plan

Te Ngahere is working in the restoration area in 5 management units. Here is a map that shows where the units are located and what invasive species are dominant in those.
