Friends of O'Connor's Bush, Greytown

A group of people committed to protecting and restoring O'Connor's Bush, a portion of uncut lowland forest and a protected Historic Reserve in Greytown. We hold a monthly working bee, and carry out weed/pest control and planting. Greytown was the first place in New Zealand to celebrate Arbor Day in 1890, so this area is very important to protect and share sustainably.

Eco-Action Nursery Trust

Eco Action eco-source native plant seed from Travis Wetland. Eco-sourcing means plants are adapted to their local environment and are more likely to grow well. Plants grown provide year-round food and habitat for native birds and other fauna like insects, lizards and invertebrates.

Project Tongariro

Project Tongariro's mission is; Inspiring New Zealanders and international visitors to connect physically, emotionally and spiritually with Tongariro National Park and its surrounds. We aim to harness and connect like-minded people, work together to improve our place, create opportunities for others and share our knowledge and experience in conservation.

Weed Action Whangarei Heads

We're a community group formed in 2014 in response to the rapidly increasing presence of environmental weeds in our community. We live in an area of ecological significance and beauty and are working to keep it that way. Weeds know no boundaries, so we work with landowners, both private and governmental to maximise our impacts.
