TEC’s Conservation Group provides volunteer opportunities within conservation work, assists and provides start-up for new projects while supporting existing volunteer groups and projects; Te Wherowhero Laggon, Waihirere Domain, Waikanae Stream, Pakowhai Reserve, Riverside Road Restoration Group and Inanga Spawning Project.
TEC’s conservation group works closely with GDC and DOC which enables us to provide a dedicated conduit and broad cross party support, to multiple volunteer based projects where collaboration with GDC, DOC Iwi/Hapu and Mana Whenua is vital.
TEC’s conservation group provides advocacy and submissions on local Council draft plans and is member of the Fresh Water Advisory Group (FWAG) – which is a partnered project with GDC, DOC, Federated Farmers and 13 other Stakeholder groups.
TEC’s conservation group promotes events and activities such as; beach clean-ups, bio blitz, community science days, workshops, and links community aspirations to protect and enjoy our local environment with resources and knowledge held in organisations such as DOC and GDC and enhances community engagement in a non-formal manner.
If you would like to be involved as a volunteer or in any way – please contact us.
