  • Description:

    On Saturday March 18, as part of the wider Love Your Coast Manukau Harbour 2017 clean-up tour, Sustainable Coastlines and Auranga invite you to a fun, family-orientated public cleanup of Drury Creek and the beautiful Ngakoroa Stream.

    Auranga is a purpose-built community with a heart, where there will be plenty of places and spaces so people can discover and connect with each other. But building a new community on a greenfields site comes with a responsibility to the natural environment. This is why the partnership between us and Auranga is so important. Auranga is serious about contributing to improved waterways and is including a generous number of parks, reserves, walkways, cycleways, and boardwalks as well as planting tens of thousands of native plants in rain gardens, wetlands and along the banks of stream and estuary waterways.

    In keeping with Auranga’s vision, this is a family orientated event where we’ll be organising games with the kids and food and refreshments for all volunteers.

    So, what’s the plan?
