Restores and protects the Onekaka River, from the Onekaka Estuary to Kahurangi National Park, including Washbourn Scenic Reserve.
The reserve contains a remnant of tall podocarp/beech dominated lowland forest and the group maintains a network of traps targeting rats, mustelids and possums. Other trap lines are along the beaches from Rangihaeata to Parapara, around the Onekaka Estuary and along the Onekaka River.
The group has assisted in planting and releasing plants as part of riparian restoration projects along the Onekaka River and the nearby Little Kaituna Estuary and in other parts of Onekaka.
The group monitors the effects the operation of the Onekaka hydro scheme has on the river.
Our membership fees are $10 and we generally have our AGM at the Mussel Inn
