Waihola Wetlands Walk

Sunday 25th March was a cool but fine day for the Lake Waihola Waipori Wetlands Society’s 10km “Wetland Walk“. One hundred walkers of all ages took the opportunity to explore a unique and largely unknown area of the south-western side of Lake Waihola. Local landowners generously opened up their properties to the participants which provided an opportunity to view the Society’s weed control programme and the special wetland areas that exist on the lake shore. The walk also took in a small remnant of totara forest on the western shoreline and apart from a late afternoon electrical storm the event was enthusiastically received.

This was the first time the event had been held by the Society and Spiralis Project Manager Paul Pope was delighted by the response and positive feedback people made about the area and the organisation of the event.
