F&B’s fresh take on water
From whitebait to wetlands, water is a vital component of daily life and the quality and quantity of fresh water is of concern to everyone.
Te Puke Forest & Bird will host a talk by Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s Kaituna Catchment Area manager Pim de Monchy next Monday night.
Pim has also previously worked for the Department of Conservation.
His focus will be on the challenges of water management in general and will include the effect of the Kaituna rediversion on the Maketu¯ estuary and the fate of the Kaituna wetlands, which are a high priority for the local Forest and Bird branch.
Of particular interest will be the effect of the Kaituna works on the whitebait season.
Everyone is welcome to the meeting and to stay for supper and general chat after the meeting.
The talk is on September 17 at the Masonic Lodge, Oxford Street, Te Puke, at 7.30pm.
