History of Friends of Oakley Creek Te Auaunga

Friends of Oakley Creek Te Auaunga is working to ensure the stream and its surrounds are protected and restored to their full ecological potential. To achieve this, we work to a management plan, with regular planting, weeding, monitoring, pest control and maintenance sessions.

We encourage and support local community involvement, and assist schools, community groups, tertiary institutions and individuals with plant propagation, planting, weed control, water quality monitoring, clean-ups, environmental education and research. We also encourage local groups and individuals to `adopt a site' on the Creek.

We liaise and work closely with local authorities to ensure Oakley Creek is protected and that its potential for restoration and enhancement is realised.
