Monitoring of the Gully Restoration Programme undertaken
by University or Waikato
A number of projects have be developed to help realise these goals. The
latest Gully Restoration Guide was released in 2006 and provides information
required to plant and implement a successful restoration project, and is
widely used around the city.
The guide has been supported by a series of theoretical and practical
workshops and seminars that provide further information and opportunities
for 'hands on learning'.
The Gully Restoration Programme has a database of interested gully owners and
enthusiasts which keeps them up to date with what is happening to support
gully restoration, through regular Newsletters or see What's On for information on
workshops, lectures, field trips.
The programme also supports other initiatives that will provide the necessary
resources for gully restoration, such as the provision of native plants for
planting on council land (see Plants for Gullies).
