At the beginning of July, Te Mahia school students learnt about fish and invertebrates that live in their river, why the river was so important and what to do to improve water quality.
This workshop is a part of the Whangawehi Catchment Management Group’s initiative looking at transferring local knowledge around Matauranga Maori themes in order to forge the next generations of Kaitiaki and reach out to the entire community.
This project is a collaboration between local Iwi and a large number of agencies.
The next workshop for this winter are :
– Vision map for the Catchment (24/07/2014)
– Native trees identification and properties (Rongoa etc.) ( 31/07/2014)
– Weaving workshop (14/08/2014)
We will keep you posted
