Members include a range of organisations and people who all share a similar passion for the lower Waikato River.


Waikato RiverCare's primary focus is on preparing, planting and maintaining areas of native plant habitat on the banks of the lower Waikato River and associated catchments, and sourcing funds and support to carry out this work.
