Public Talk: The Story of the Ashburton/Hakatere River

The Story of the Ashburton/Hakatere River: Mountains to the Sea; Past, Present and Future.

The Ashburton Branch of Forest & Bird have had a close and constant association with this important and beautiful regional river. Edith Smith (branch chairperson) and John Waugh (Ashburton Water Zone Committee) will share their journey to bring an awareness of the needs of the river to the wider community, the challenges due to human habitation and abstraction, and the work being done to ensure a better way forward.

Supper and a chat afterwards. All welcome.
