    Why are we doing it?

    Hammond Park is one of the last remaining areas of mature native bush along the Waikato River. It is home to long-tailed bats, tui, kereru, bellbird, morepork, native fish, glow worms, and the regionally rare swamp maire. The Riverlea Environment Society Inc (RESI) works with the Hamilton City Council to restore this hidden gem for the enjoyment of all by controlling pests and weeds and planting natives. The increasing birdsong and growing forest is the direct result efforts by HCC, WRC and Riverlea residents and we want to celebrate with the community.
