Cromwellians are being invited to get their hands dirty to plant 10,000 trees to kickstart a huge reforestation operation on the shores of Lake Dunstan.
It's the first stage of the Bridge to Bridge planting project that's aiming to put 56,000 native plants in the ground between the Lowburn and Deadman's Point bridges.
With freak flooding events increasing in frequency, Central Otago's mayor is pushing for a rethink on wastewater disposal and questioning whether it should be discharged into waterways.
Is it time to stop treating our lakes and rivers like toilets?
We are thrilled to be working with such amazing people and an amazing nursery that will grow 1million native plants a year to restore our local environment, support careers in conservation for youth, and combat climate change.
Yesterday's nursery opening was an incredible opportunity to connect with their vision, mana whenua and other groups undertaking projects such as our bridge to bridge.
