#SAVEOURAWA - Matariki 2016
#saveourawa started off with beautiful Wairoa weather on Friday 24th June 2016.
Participants were able to experience a variety of things including interactive workshops, traditional kite making, informative static displays, tree planting and Rangatahi-lead couch interviews.
Yroa Ynot had great support from local as well as regional individuals and businesses/providers.

• Majority of the day was successful - participants and facilitators enjoyed themselves, and took away some new pieces of information for future use in restoring and maintaining our natural resources. The day was also great for connections and networking with one another.
• Feedback and evaluation debrief to review the whole event process has been completed.
Personal highlights included the beautiful sun/weather, the tree planting by the awa, manu tukutuku (traditional kite making) and the Rangatahi couch interviews.
