Whitcombe landcare group
The Whitcombe Landcare Group is a group of 10 farmers in the upper Rakaia River who have been working closely with DOC, LINZ and ECan to stop the spread above the gorge road of wilding pines, elderberry, willow, blackberry, sycamore, russell lupins and cotoneaster. In so doing, they are also ensuring the ecological and hydro-geomorphological function of the river is maintained.
