Conservation Week in the Wairarapa

August 30 @ 8:00 am - September 26 @ 5:00 pm

This year for Conservation Week we are urging the Wairarapa to take a moment to think about our climate.

There’s a range of activities happening across the region – fish and insect monitoring, planting and weeding, presentations by climate change experts, art exhibitions, film screenings and more – there’s something for everyone.

Connect with nature, get inspired and learn how you can make a difference to our environment.
