Hawke's Bay Today - - Local News -

A com­mu­nity plant­ing event has been planned for this week­end, with a fo­cus on Karamu¯ Stream to help im­prove wa­ter qual­ity and bio­di­ver­sity habi­tat. On Satur­day, vol­un­teers will help es­tab­lish the new Wa­ha­parata Wet­land on Brook­vale Rd near Have­lock North, a des­ig­nated ‘hot spot' area, funded by $1 mil­lion raised from rates. Karamu¯ Stream is an im­por­tant wa­ter­way as it drains a large area of the Here­taunga Plains, in­clud­ing city stormwa­ter.
