Nominations for the Golden Spade and Pestbuster awards close on May 1 so time is running short to put forward any projects run by or associated with your branch or Forest & Bird group.
The awards are a signifi cant way we can recognise the huge amount of work done by branches and Forest & Bird groups to restore nature through planting and pest control work.
This year’s award winners will be announced on World Environment Day on June 5 and trophies will be presented at the Forest & Bird conference in Wellington on June 15-17.
A small branch has just as much chance of winning as a larger one because the size will be taken into account in choosing a winner.
Full details of the awards and how to send in nominations were included in the March edition of Nature in Action.
