History of Friends of Maungawhau

Started as an informal group in the 1980s; ongoing programme for the past 11 years.

We have eradicated major weed species from many areas, including blue morning glory, privet, honeysuckle, moth plant, and woolly nightshade.

We are slowly rehabilitating cleared areas, and would like to network with groups working on similar landforms.

In 2009 we supported Ngāti Whātua in halting stock grazing and banning heavy buses from the maunga.
