Waikato's Leading Riparian Restoration Charity


Waikato RiverCare is a not-for-profit charitable trust, undertaking riparian restoration on the lower Waikato River and associated catchments.The organisation has been operating since 1999, officially became an incorporated society in 2001 and a charitable entity in 2008. 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. Co-ordinating community involvement in these projects is an important part of Waikato RiverCare's focus.
