Our People...

We are fortunate to have the support of a dedicated committee, made up of individuals and representatives from our key supporters.

Waikato RiverCare Executive Committee 2014

The support of volunteers on planting days and with hands-on weed control is invaluable. Our volunteers help us in the process of protecting the natural asset of the River, and gain a sense of achievement in assisting with real progress.
