Omokoroa Public Art Group: The lizard sculpture at the corner of Omokoroa Road and State Highway 2 is a major achievement of this group. The aim of the group is to promote the use of artworks around the peninsula to reflect the unique character of Omokoroa.

Omokoroa Estuaries Restoration Group (OERG): OERG began in 2004 as residents became aware of the effects of increasing areas of mangroves on the estuaries surrounding the Omokoroa Peninsula. The OERG committee is focused on maintenance along the estuary foreshores and works with the community on volunteer planting and weed control along the esplanade reserve areas in co-operation with the Western Bay of Plenty District Council. This work always needs helpers so if you are interested, please email: estuaries@omokoroa.org.nz
