Your Streams

Imagine a network of local streams, sparkling with health, brimming with wildlife and framed by native bush corridors alive with birdsong.  Imagine heading down to the local stream for a summer’s dip in clean, clear water. Imagine escaping along walk and cycleways, dotted with beautiful artworks, linking the Waitākere Ranges to the Waitematā Harbour.  Sounds pretty good doesn’t it?

This is the vision at the heart of our work to restore and conserve the stream habitats that flow through our communities. By getting everyone involved from individuals to community groups, the projects will foster a respect, understanding and love for our stream environments, through education and action including weeding, planting, artworks, streamside education to issues of wider sustainability.

Project Twin Streams

Project Twin Streams is a large-scale environmental restoration project. It is working to improve water quality in Waitākere streams by revegetating 56 kms of streambanks with native trees and shrubs to create a pristine environment for ecology to thrive.

How can I help?

Project Twin Streams host regular community planting days and other events that anyone can join in. Check out our regular volunteering opportunities at Volunteer.

You or a group of you can also commit to looking after a portion of a local stream with the Adopt-a-Streambank initiative! Visit for all the details.
