With Conservation Week 2013 just around the corner, the Northland Conservation Board is encouraging Northlanders to grab their whānau and to get involved.
Mita Harris Northland Conservation Board Chair says, "We are excited about this year's theme - 'Celebrate Conservation Week! What's your whānau doing?'. It's such a great opportunity for families and friends, work mates, schools, or interest groups to get together and to experience the natural environment and all it has to offer."
Mr Harris says, "It's so important that we connect with our special places and native wildlife from time to time, and Conservation Week is the perfect occasion to celebrate our conservation achievements here in Northland together."
"There are lots of fun activities for Conservation Week happening around Northland between 8–15 September - from guided walks and kiwi listening to open days and working bees in local reserves. You can even make a pledge and be in to win a trip for four to Great Barrier Island!"
Northland Conservation Board members will do their best to take part in and to support as many local events as possible says Mr Harris.
Mr Harris says in the meantime, the Board has been meeting diligently every two weeks, and is currently in the last stages of finalising the Northland Conservation Management Strategy (CMS).
