The Paradise Valley Catchment Group was formed in February 2018 in response to landowner’s concerns ranging from flooding and stream bank erosion to water quality in the Upper Ngongotaha area.

 NZ Landcare Trust supported the group with their set-up and initial achievements. The Group developed a Catchment Plan with three overarching goals and several objectives. The vision for the plan was to put ‘Paradise’ back into Paradise Valley. An Action Plan was developed steps towards achieving the objectives.

The Catchment Group runs quarterly meetings to progress the actions and hear from relevant guest speakers.
