What question have you always wanted to ask about your environment?

People can more easily find solutions to local environmental challenges via a new online resource developed by the North East Catchment Management Authority (NECMA). The new website provides a one-stop shop to natural resource management by offering tips, technical information and resources for solving issues like weed management, water supply and protection of vegetation. It also offers the latest information about environmental grants, conferences and volunteering opportunities.
