The Lake Dunstan Charitable Trust has contracted the Shaping Our Future organisation to create a vision for Lake Dunstan this year.
As 2021 draws to an end, we reflect on this year's achievements, what 2022 holds for the trust and want to thank the Cromwell community for supporting our efforts to create a healthier and happier lake Dunstan for people and wildlife.
Thank you to all who attended the launch of our event, Ripple Effect, Burger Afloat for feeding us all, Lake Dunstan Boat Club for letting us use their newly renovated building and an extra big thank you to the amazing Anna Yeoman for presenting.
We were delighted to see so many people taking the time to learn about dryland ecosystems and lizard life. It was fascinating to explore how the area used to look, why we have lost so much of the original local habitat and how we can all do our bit to protect and improve lizard populations in the region and our own gardens.

The relocation of the Kiwi Waterpark was approved by the Central Otago District Council in a variation to the original resource consent granted in 2020. With the lake being a public asset, we are disappointed the council did not seek to engage with the wider community during the decision process.
