Rainbows End features a stand of stunning mature pohutukawa trees which are home to many native birds, as is the nearby coastal estuary.
Rainbows End and Rivers Environmental Group Inc are active in pest control on rural properties and on the Rainbows End reserve and headland. Planting and weed control on the main reserve to slow down erosion, reduce siltation, and improve habitat for native birds and animals, are all part of the group’s environmental work.
REaREG’s work is collaborative with other environmental groups including pest control with ‘The Forest Bridge Trust’, and shellfish motoring in the estuary with ‘Friends of Awa Matakanakana Catchment’.
While there is no shortage of local volunteers, the group welcomes volunteer support for major environmental projects on the Green Road peninsular.
