Gisborne District Council together with Department of Conservation want to encourage people to take pride in our urban streams and treat them as an important and valuable part of their property.
A 'streamside planting guide' has been developed. This guide will tell you about native planting on urban streamsides.

The guide includes:
- a step by step plan to getting started
