Warning!!! Do not ask him about wetlands.

Nathan has a passion for wetlands and wetland restoration that is contagious. He has worked with landowners in New Zealand and the United States to create wetlands for biodiversity and flood control.

You can usually find him knee deep in swamp muck with a big smile on his face. Nathan has a vast experience at landscape restoration of wetlands and streams. He has a passion for working with private landowners to enhance and protect the land for future generations.

Nathan enjoys working for NZ Landcare Trust because it allows him to work with landowners to encourage good land stewardship.

His experience with landscape scale restoration has given him a unique perspective when dealing with catchment issues and catchment groups.
