Watch our latest video about the Beyond Regulation Mataura Catchment Project on our YouTube channel

The Southland Catchment Groups Christmas Competition was the very cool idea of Hedgehope Makarewa, Waihopai, Gore and Mid Aparima Catchment Groups. The aim of the competition - to encourage everyone to get on board and spread some rural festive cheer throughout Southland.
