At its August meeting the Trust was pleased to confirm Peter Gilberd as a new trustee representing the southern part of the catchment.
Peter has extensive contacts with New Zealand’s scientific community, and a broad knowledge of research across many fields, including ecology.
Peter has supported planting at local schools including Mana College, Glenview School, and Russell School. The stream that was the starting point for his restoration activities, a Woodridge tributary to the Belmont Stream, is in the south-eastern corner of the Porirua catchment. Peter is currently leading the community restoration of the Belmont Stream in Seton Nossiter Park, which is a Million Metres Streams Project.
