We are a local river care group that was established in 2000 to achieve Vision 3 (Develop a "living laboratory" that focuses on both learning and research) of the Christchurch City Council
sStyx Vision 2000 – 2040.’ Since then we have been guardians and advocates for the awa and the Pūharakekenui/Styx catchment. Our trustees and volunteers are advocates for maintaining water quality and other values (including drainage, ecology, landscape, culture, recreation, and heritage values) in the awa. We care deeply about our water and want it to remain clean, healthy, biodiverse and available for future generations to use and enjoy. And we would love to have you on board to help us achieve this! Every year over 2000 volunteer hours are clocked up through our tree plantings, water quality & bird monitoring programmes and our annual community events. We have fortnightly weekday sessions and one monthly weekend sessions. These normally take a few hours at most and are a great opportunity to meet likeminded people and make a difference in the Styx catchment. Join us and become a Styx warrior and help us protect the Pūharakekenui! Get your hands dirty at one of our events or you can help by sharing our posts and raising awareness! Request a referral now!
