We are a local river care group that was established in 2000 to achieve Vision 3 (Develop a "living laboratory" that focuses on both learning and research) of the Christchurch City Council
sStyx Vision 2000 – 2040.’ Since then we have been guardians and advocates for the awa and the Pūharakekenui/Styx catchment. Our trustees and volunteers are advocates for maintaining water quality and other values (including drainage, ecology, landscape, culture, recreation, and heritage values) in the awa. We care deeply about our water and want it to remain clean, healthy, biodiverse and available for future generations to use and enjoy. And we would love to have you on board to help us achieve this!
The Trust are seeking Environmental Advocacy Volunteers to help draft submissions and responses for plans, consents and any legislation that may impact the health of our awa. Environmental Advocacy Volunteers will get experience working with a diverse range of groups and it will be a great opportunity to meet likeminded people and make a difference in the Styx catchment.
If you have a few hours a month spare and are passionate about conservation then the Pūharakekenui needs you!
