13th September - Trust awarded Outdoor Access Champion Award 2017-2018
On the 12th September the New Zealand Walking Access Commission proudly presented to the Waikato River Trails Trust the Outdoor Access Champion Award for 2017-2018.
This award recognises the Trust's efforts to establish and develop improved opportunities for people to access the great outdoors.
"The creation of your trails, combined with the strong community involvement in replanting of riparian areas has brought great benefit to your region, and the Commission applauds the efforts of the Trust and all who have worked with it."
Chairman of the Commission John Forbes commented "People in 100 years time can look back at the legacy you have left today - something we can enjoy now and tomorrow, and also into the future."
