Waikato River Trails Trust

The Waikato River Trails Trust received $2,420 to purchase equipment to clear areas covered in weeds so that it can be replant them with native species.

Each year the trust establishes over 15,000 native plants along the riparian margins of the Waikato River and its tributaries.

This planting is an essential part of the trust’s vision of helping restore the biodiversity of its rivers, but also provides an opportunity to educate the volunteers and public about the need to preserve and protect its natural assets.
