Fish Fest: a family fun day celebrating our freshwater wildlife - and International Migratory Fish Day!
NZ Landcare Trust and Conservation Kids NZ are hosting FISH FEST. See an electric fishing demonstration (non-harming), have a go at identifying our freshwater fish and aquatic stream insects, and learn what makes a healthy stream. This event is part of the Rai Valley Community Stream project, a citizen science project collecting data on streams around Rai Valley, and the families are keen to share what they are finding.
