Nature needs us: join us in Hauraki for Conservation Week’s 50th anniversary

This year, numerous groups in Hauraki are offering activities and ways to get involved in this year’s Conservation Week from 14 – 22 September.

The Festival of Living Solutions is on Saturday 7 September at 11 am at St James Hall, Thames. The festival will have inspiring stalls promoting ways to care for our environment. DOC will be there with information and free native seedlings to help encourage wildlife into their gardens.

On Sunday 15 September at 11 am, there is a chance to get up close and personal with our very special native geckos. This is a popular activity and booking is essential.
