Nelson-Tasman: Evening talk by Leigh Marshall about Nelson Nature

Leigh Marshall, Environmental Programmes Advisor for Nelson City Council, will give a presentation on Nelson Nature. Nelson Nature is a 10 year programme funded by Nelson City Council to protect and improve biodiversity values in the Nelson region. Nelson Nature works closely with other agencies and the community to protect and enhance key ecosystems including Dun Mountain, urban and rural waterways, coastal habitats and Significant Natural Areas that occur on private land. Nelson Nature is also working closely with the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and community groups to develop wider predator control for wildlife recovery outside of the Brook Sanctuary. The Nelson Branch of Forest and Bird is an important partner with many projects that fall under Nelson Nature’s umbrella, including the Dun Mountain restoration project and coastal restoration projects.
