A.I. and scientific ingenuity: the next step in protecting NZ's lakes and rivers from invasive aquatic weeds
If done right, the transition of the Kawarau arm back to river would create a beautiful area for the community to enjoy. At the moment the Kawarau Arm is all about what has been lost, but we want to change it to what we gain.
Listen to Megan from Lake Dunstan Charitable Trust (LDCT) chat with Henry on Radio Central about what's going on this month with Lake Dunstan and the Kawarau Arm. We talk about how the investigation into a weed harvester is going, what's going on with the driftwood and our restoration project we have planned.
Megan will be on the radio the third Thursday of each month at 8:40am so make sure you tune in!
Was a chilly but amazing night being part of the Light Up Winter 2021. Thank you to everyone who came along and had a chat with Megan, our community coordinator.
It was a brilliant night of mulled wine, live music and fantastic lanterns. Cant wait for next years!
Fulton Hogan are making fantastic progress in the removal of driftwood in the Kawarau Arm. In just four days they have covered around 900m of the shoreline from Richards Beach to Butchers Drive.
It is the first time this part of the arm has been cleared and we cannot wait to see all the work finished. Great work Fulton Hogan and Contact Energy!
