Upper Waipoua Kaitiaki Group

About us

​Our group was established in 2018 with the vision “our community will work together to enhance our environment, our community and our economic stability.”

We are a small but enthusiastic group of farmers, small block owners and other interested parties. We have gained a lot from field trips following each of our streams, exploring, observing and measuring them.


    • Mapping our catchment including the improvements made
    • Individual farms fencing and planting
    • Group project – trial planting the river for shade
    • Pest control
    • Water quality monitoring
