We’ve been working with local landowners on the Mangapū River at Opārure to undertake an awa fencing and native planting programme to improve the water quality of the awa and surrounding riparian areas. With support from Maniapoto Māori Trust Board, the Waikato River Authority, Waikato Catchment Ecological Enhancement Trust, local marae and public support, 5.6km of awa has been fenced and planted with 12,500 native plants. This coming autumn it is intended to continue this work covering an additional 2.2km and 4800 native plants.
