The main activities undertaken by the Ashley Rakahuri River Care Group are:
During 2015/16, 34 occasions were used to improve awareness. The Group’s PowerPoint presentation was shown on five occasions (including three schools) and displays were erected at three sites. Nine articles appeared in ‘The Press’ and local papers, plus our website and a Facebook page was maintained, with use well up on the previous (first) year. Assistance was given to DOC during their Conservation Week programme, plus the Group gave a presentation at a major braided river workshop on May 31, 2016.
