Whakaupoko Landcare covers the areas of Mauku, Pukeoware, Aka Aka, Glenbrook, Patumahoe and Puni. The area contains a number of scattered bush remnants dominated by taraire, puriri and totara, and a high kereru population.

The registered charity was formed in 2004 due to a general landowner concern that the environment around the Bald Hill area was not improving and that pests such as possums continued to be an issue despite the efforts of some individuals. There are now over 100 active participants in the group.

As well as pest and weed control, monitoring and revegetation work, the group also organises evening meetings with talks by guest speakers, and hands-on field days.

Already have traps and bait stations?

We would love it if you could get them mapped, and even better, keep records. Don’t worry, the locations are kept private, it just lets us know roughly where action is happening.
