About Avon-Ōtākaro Network

Avon-Ōtākaro Network is a network of individuals and organisations.  Our members, supporters and collaborators are many and diverse.
We are dedicated to creating an ecological reserve and multi-purpose river park in the Avon River residential red zone as defined in our Charter.
We began after the first Avon River red-zone land announcement in mid-2011. Since then we have established a rich and significant history of achievements
Leadership of the network is provided by our Strategic Steering Group (SSG) – the ‘guardians of the vision’.  
Members of the SSG are also members of Avon-Ōtākaro Incorporated a legal entity established to act as fund-holder to support the vision of Avon-Ōtākaro Network. 
We contract the services of 2-3 part-time contractors to support us in progressing our key initiatives.
