TE PUNA WAIORA O NUKUTAURUA is a community based project led by the Rongomaiwahine Iwi Trust looking at involving the community in a wider freshwater plan. The group, led by Hannah Coop, organised a very successful community walk on the 11th of December 2022.During this 12 km walk, 60 locals walked from the waharoa to the whare where a picnic was organised . This event gave the opportunity for our local community to discover the beautiful plantings established by the Whangawehi Catchment Group.
We hope this initiative will encourage community leaders to work collaboratively to protect and enhance our freshwater resources.
Well done Hannah for this great event.
