Who is Thriving Southland?
Thriving Southland is a community-led group with a vision to create a prosperous Southland, healthy people, healthy environment from the mountains to the sea.
By working together, Thriving Southland’s communities will create a better future for all by protecting Southland’s prosperity, heritage, environment and health.
What is a Catchment Group?
A group of people who identify with a geographical area, usually based on a river or lake catchment, working together to take action towards a common vision.
Why are Catchment Groups so great?
When farmers and the community get together to discuss local issues and opportunities, great things can happen. Contact our catchment group coordinators to find out more.
