Poukawa Stream restoration

The Hastings-Havelock North Branch worked with Hawke’s Bay Regional Council to restore the banks of the Poukawa Stream which drains wetlands that form the Pekapeka Regional Park.

Our vision was to have the stream in a fit state to support aquatic and terrestrial life thus enabling birds to travel across our region from the Kaweka Ranges to the east coast.  To achieve this we have planted native trees and shrubs and cared for them over a period of three years concluding in 2017.
