The Riverlea Environment Society Incorporated (RESI) was formed in 2007 to restore and enhance Hammond Park which we call 'Hamilton's Hidden Gem'. It's Hamilton's most diverse remnant bush and is home to many very special native plants, birds, fish, Pekapeka Tou Roa (bats) and insects (such as glow worms!). We run working bees from 10am-12pm on the last Saturday of each month and 10am-12pm every second Thursday. We carry out regular pest control, and work with neighbouring property owners to increase the natural habitat. We are part of Project Echo, a movement to protect the native long-tailed bat (pekapeka tou roa), a critically endangered species. The Hamilton City Council and the Waikato Regional Council support our work. We also engage with local government on matters of town planning and resource consent processes that we feel will impact the environment of Riverlea and Hammond Park. We involve the wider community via email, Facebook and a newsletter that is delivered to all Riverlea houses.
