Whakaupoko Landcare expands over Mauku, Pukeoware, Aka Aka, Glenbrook, Patumahoe and Puni. The registered charity was formed in 2004 among a general concern that the environment around the Bald Hill area was not improving and pests such as possums continued to be an issue despite the efforts of some individuals. There are now in excess of 100 active participants.

As well as pest and weed control, monitoring and revegetation, there are a combination of evening meetings and Field days. The area has scattered bush remnants with taraire, puriri, totara in dominance and a high kereru population.
