Nathan has been working throughout the Hawke’s Bay Region assisting new catchment groups establish and providing technical expertise around wetlands and riparian restoration. He is currently helping the Te Wai-o-Hinganga (Esk) River Care Group, Porangahau Catchment Group, and the Tukipo Catchment group get started and setting direction and goals.

Nathan has actively been working with the Raupare Enhancement Society to continue riparian plantings and in-stream works to improve water quality and fish biodiversity in the Raupare stream which is part of the Karamu catchment. He is working with the group to plan riparian planting not only to enhance the Raupare stream, but also provide pollinator habitat for the surrounding agricultural landscape
