The eco-history of estuaries

The eco-history of estuaries

Wellington’s estuaries and inlets – including the Hutt River estuary and Pauatahanui Inlet – will be featured at a show and tell evening at Te Papa on Thursday, 27 November. The event has been organised by the Greater Wellington Regional Council.

The keynote speaker is Geoff Park, eco-historian and author, who will use historical photos to illustrate the effect of human settlement on the landscape of the Hutt Valley. The Hutt River estuary was once surrounded by forest.

The event organiser, Paul Denton from Greater Wellington, says, “We now have the opportunity to learn from what has happened in the Hutt Valley and apply it to another significant estuary in the region, the Pauatahanui Inlet.

Russell Plume, Chairperson of the Pauatahanui Inlet Community Trust, will talk about the role of the Trust, issues facing the inlet, and the programmes the Trust will be getting into over the coming years.

The evening will also include an overview of estuarine dynamics by Glen Lauder from Commonground & Associates.
This is the third and final talk about Wellington’s marine environment organised by Greater Wellington. It will be held on Thursday, 27 November, 6.30 – 8pm at the Soundings Theatre, Te Papa, Wellington. Entry is free.
