Southern Field Days – Pop in for a cuppa and a chat

Southern Field Days – Pop in for a cuppa and a chat


Environment Southland staff invite you to pop in and see us for a cuppa and a chat at the 2014 Southern Field Days this week.

This year we are taking an integrated approach – from the mountains to the sea – in our marquee. While the main focus will be on water quality, the council’s number one priority, there will be plenty more on offer too.

The Water and Land 2020 & Beyond project, Environment Southland’s response to the Government’s National Policy Statement for Freshwater and the responsibilities outlined in the Regional Water Plan will feature prominently.

As well, staff members from a wide scope of divisions will be available to discuss everything from disposing of chemicals and waste to rivers and rainfall, dairy conversions, pest control and good on-farm management practices. To spark further interest, the biosecurity team will have some of the insects being used as biocontrol agents there on display.

Elected Councillors will also be on site and there is even the chance to win plants for your property. You can also go into the draw for a $200 ILT voucher. Just clip out the coupon in the latest Envirosouth and drop it into our entry box on site.

Southern Field Days are held at Waimumu. They run for three days, 12–14 February. The Environment Southland marquee will be on site 286, in Violet Lane.
