Welcome to Friends of the Whau (FOW)

How to Get Involved

The Whau River Catchment Trust (WRCT) is the principal environmental umbrella organisation for the Whau River catchment and has now joined with Friends of the Whau (FOW). The WRCT and FOW are working together for healthier streams and river through community participation and kaitiakitanga.

Join with the Friends of the Whau (FOW). and help make a difference by making a donation.

Take time out, visit the river, and enjoy the many recreational opportunities it affords e.g. bird watching, kayaking, walking, cycling and fishing to name but a few things you can do or simply join in to improve the river and streams ecosystems by helping to plant thousands of native trees and shrubs.

Interested in Joining the Friends of the Whau?

The Friends of the Whau Club is all about taking some time out with like minded people in your community, getting to know your neighbours while improving the environment in your neighbourhood.

Are you a person who would like to help in some small way, who is keen to associate with similar like-minded people, yet may not have a lot of time available. Then contact us, or simply turn up to one of our events and talk to our Co-ordinator Sandra Maclean  on 021 295 0302 or email sandra@whauriver.org.nz.
