Cawthron River Awards 2nd placing for NZ!

Hawke’s Bay’s Maraetōtara Tree Trust has won second place in the Supreme Award category of the 2021 Cawthron New Zealand River Awards.

The Supreme Award’s title is Catchment with Most Progress Toward River Health in New Zealand.  The Awards celebrate the efforts and achievements of people who are committed to improving freshwater health in Aotearoa.

The Maraetōtara Tree Trust started planting the Maraetōtara River 19 years ago that is 86 km both sides with 38 kms since reserved and planted.

Annually, an area of 2.5 hectares is planted, requiring 10,000 trees and flaxes now totalling over 170,000 native trees.

Project original sponsor since 2006 Turley & Co director and prior chair Pat Turley says “the award and recognition is a coup for probably the longest running project of its type and possibly the only whole river project in NZ.”
