Get funding for restoration planting
Greater Wellington Regional Council's restoration fund for the Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour Catchment has been set up to protect the habits of native creatures and minimise the damaging effect of soil run off into the harbour.
The fund also works to protect the high biodiversity values of the region, and enhance the important cultural, social and economic values of the harbour.
Funding grants are available again this September 2016 to community groups looking to help restore and protect the biodiversity of the beautiful Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour and its catchment.
Support will be provided for community groups who want to restore native plants to stream sides, reserves and coastal areas. The grant covers native planting, planting materials, pest plant and animal control, and tools and refreshments for working bees.
In 2015, five groups received a share of $24,000 for the production of plants, planting and preparatory weed control:
