The Department of Conservation is celebrating 50 years of Conservation Week this September.

Throughout New Zealand, DoC districts are putting the call out to people and groups to see if they would like to run an event during that week, or highlight their work. 

DoC Manawatu Wairarapa District Office are organising some events in this district; they can also assist people who would like to run their own event, by putting it on eventfinda which links to the Department of Conservation website. They can also provide posters and window decals based on the design below, showing marine, terrestrial , forest and freshwater species. This week coincides with Clean Up NZ week too. 

If you would like any more information, or you are interested in running an event, please contact the Department of Conservation on 027 540 5412.conservation week.jpg
