Waikato RiverCare Incorporated has just received the great honour of being selected as a finalist at the Green Ribbon Awards to be held at Parliament Buildings, Wellington, early next month. The prestigious awards recognise the outstanding contributions of individuals, businesses and communities to protect and improve our environment throughout New Zealand.
Waikato RiverCare Inc. was nominated in the Caring for Our Water category for the riparian restoration work undertaken along the banks of the Lower Waikato River and its catchments over the last 17 years.
It is fantastic that Waikato RiverCare Inc. is being recognised for its efforts over many years to protect and enhance the wellbeing of the awa, however none of the projects would have been possible without the dedication and support of our current and previous committee members and their organisations. A big thank you is also owed to our funders, sponsors and partner organisations that have supported the many projects undertaken by Waikato RiverCare Inc. These entities can rightly share in this award nomination. The time, in-kind contributions and financial support received has been a key element of Waikato RiverCare Inc.’s success and achievements on the awa and its catchments.
