Otago

Regional Coordinator: Craig Simpson

NZ Landcare Trust has a regional coordinator based in Otago working on a number of projects. Otago Regional Coordinator Craig Simpson works with local government and national agencies to identify opportunities for land and water quality-based projects, and also works with a growing number of land and water-based citizen groups who are keen to work towards a strong future for their local environments.

While the Pomahaka catchment features strongly in the work carried out by the Trust in the Otago region, Craig works in several other catchments too including the Lower Clutha area, as well as project work based in the Lake Mahinerangi where stock exclusion is a priority.

Craig regularly holds events including forums, workshops and field days to help educate and inform people on the catchments around Otago; water monitoring and analyses; and plenty more.
