Te Hoiere Project invites you to join us on 6 December from 10am to 2pm to learn about culverts and their role in helping our native freshwater fish to thrive in the catchment. We’ll provide a BBQ lunch for attendees on the working dairy farm of Tanya and Murray Frost in Linkwater. Watch as Leslie Brothers remove the culvert, and a freshwater scientist explains why it should be replaced and how it was assessed for fish passage. We’ll also discuss other options for improving fish passages that don’t include full replacements. As contractors begin to install the new culvert, we’ll also chat about positioning and other aspects to help native fish thrive. Removing barriers to fish migration is important for our freshwater fish, especially the two threatened and seven at-risk native species found in our catchment.
When: 6 December; 10am-2pm
Where: The Frost farm in Linkwater, 141 Kenepuru Road
What: BBQ lunch, culvert installation and native freshwater fish
Who: RSVP to email@example.com
This culvert replacement is part of the Project's work to support the community in remediating barriers to fish passages.
