Rotary project opens up Porirua's natural beauty
The views along Te Ara Piko Pathway, around the Pauatahanui Inlet, are among Porirua’s natural wonder. But the pathway itself didn’t happen by accident. Running along the northern edge of the Inlet through native salt marshes and wetland habitat – a nationally important estuary – it is a major project for the Rotary Club of Plimmerton, in partnership with Porirua City Council.
The Te Ara Piko Pathway project was recognised in the 2011 Encore Awards, co-hosted by the Department of Conservation, Wellington Hawke’s Bay Conservancy, Conservation Board and Greater Wellington Regional Council. The Encore Awards honour people going the extra mile to restore, protect and enhance nature and history, and enable others to enjoy it.
