In June 2004, a meeting at Glenavy attended by over 100 people, resolved that a Management Strategy was needed for the Lower Waitaki River, from the Waitaki Dam to the sea. In a series of meetings the community identified the issues, listened to presentations from experts in a range of fields, and interested groups and individuals in the community who were invited to put forward their viewpoints, and wishes for the river. Legal status as an Incorporated Society was obtained in 2006. The Society is facilitated by Environment Canterbury and made up of a broad cross section of individuals and organisations with an interest in the Lower Waitaki River.
