Upper Clutha Conservation Network

Welcome to the Upper Clutha Conservation Network. Following on from the Community Conservation Forum held in Wanaka in May 2014, this network is for groups, individuals and landowners undertaking conservation restoration work in the Upper Clutha region. From the feedback generated at this meeting we identified that there are opportunities for collaboration, information sharing and development at a more operational level to be explored. Objectives of the network:
• To identify ways the conservation groups can work together to exchange information and to create synergies
