The Manawatū River Leaders’ Forum met in Palmerston North today to discuss progress of initiatives underway to help improve the Manawatū River and catchment.
Seven community groups have been successful in securing financial aid from the Manawatū River Leaders’ Accord community grants.
Applications for the Manawatū River Leaders’ Accord community grants programme opened today.
The grants aim to assist non-profit organisations such as community groups, schools, catchment care groups and iwi/hapu with projects that will help increase engagement with Manawatū waterways and improve water quality in the catchment.
A "ground-breaking" iwi-led project is bringing life back to the Manawatu River.
Shannon's Poutu Pa Marae was buzzing with whanau at the weekend as iwi worked to restore native plants back to the banks of the river.
