More than 40 people turned out yesterday with gumboots on and shovels in hand to work on improving the health of the Waikanae stream.

The volunteers spent the afternoon collecting rubbish, removing weeds and planting more than 140 native shrubs along the banks to filter run-off from surrounding areas.

The Waikanae stream work is part of a long-term project to restore, improve and protect the waterway.
