National Wetland Trust

The National Wetland Trust is a non-profit organisation established to increase the appreciation of wetlands and their values by all New Zealanders. We aim to build a wetland interpretation centre near Hamilton Airport for people to learn more about wetlands and experience their special qualities. We also organise regular wetland restoration symposia and are developing wetland trails and regional directories of wetlands to visit.

 

Friends of the Hutt River

Friends of the Hutt River is an advocacy group formed May 2011. Terasa Horman and Pat van Berkel were concerned about Greater Wellington Regional Council seeking permission to remove more water from the Hutt River for a period of three years whilst the reservoirs at Te Marua were strengthened and enlarged. They held two public meetings, one in Lower Hutt and one in Upper Hutt. From these meetings a group of very concerned public formed a core group.Check out our vision,aims and objectives in the Statement of Purpose in the Documents area.

Community Action Wellington Meetup Group

This is a group based on the Meetup social networking website. We help out existing community groups in the greater wellington region with activities such as tree planting, beach cleaning and track cutting.

We post events on our website and our members can sign up, chat about the event and post photos afterwards.

The theme of the group is sociable volunteering. As well as volunteering, events usually also include having some food, drink and plenty of time for mingling with each other and members of the groups that we are meeting up with.
