2020 Outdoor Access
Champion Awards
The Outdoor Access Champion awards recognise people and organisations who
have made signicant and lasting contributions to public access to the outdoors in
New Zealand, whether through securing new legal access, championing public rights
of access, trail building, or contributing to an understanding of access rights and
responsibilities.
These awards are New Zealand’s way of saying thanks to some of the wonderful
people who have helped open up the great outdoors to the public.
We encourage people to think about their local champions – both individuals and
groups – and put forward a nomination for consideration.
