The Whangawehi Catchment Management Group has been nominated to :
– Pride of NZ Award. The WCMG has been successful and the judges have chosen our nominee Kathleen Mato as one of our 72 regional finalists (that’s 3 finalists, in each of the 6 award categories, in each of the 4 PONZ regions – Upper north, Mid north, Lower north and South Island). This is a significant National recognition for the group, well done. A TV crew should film Kathleen and other members of the community at the end of this month.

The group has been selected for the NZ River Award (Community story category). The 2014 winners will be announced at the River Awards Dinner on 27 November in Wellington. Professor Gary Jones from Canberra will be the guest speaker at the dinner.
