ORC at Wānaka A&P Show

Friday 8 March 2024 - 9 March 2024

8.30 am - 5.00 pm

Venue: Site J4 Wānaka Showgrounds

We've got great activities, staff to help answer your environmental related questions, and a whole lot of science around stream and soil health.


 Our teams can answer your questions on everything environment-related, such as: 

  • Consents 
  • Earthworks rules 
  • Intensive winter grazing 
  • Rabbit-proof fencing 
  • Wallabies 
  • Wilding conifer control 


Discover the science behind stream and soil health, and learn about catchment planning and what it means for the Upper Lakes communities. 

You can also try out our environmental data and natural hazards portals. 

There’ll be lots of fun activities for the kids, too – face painting (on Friday), spot the wallaby, and go fishing!  

And we’ll also have the cutest tracker dog ever making guest appearances – learn how Toby the scat dog can track wallabies. 

The team will be at Site J4 over 8-9 March at the Wānaka Showgrounds – see you there!
