Impact of the sluice....  

  • Wanganui investigate impact....Impact of the sluice....

Wanganui High today heard a presentation about the human impact on the Lakes District and Central Otago area over time.

On a field trip south as part of their NCEA Level Two geography course they learnt about the  significant impact by humans on the area. This included forest burning by early Maori hunting for Moa, mining machinery such as sluice guns and dredges carving out large areas of hillsides and rivers to the impact of of tourism.

Hopefully you learnt something and possibly even found some gold in the river! Post us a blog about it.

An excellent, informative and well presented session. It was exactly what we were hoping for and students gained a lot of knowledge on the impacts humans have had on the SOuth Island High Country, in particular, the Central Otago area.
Thanks for having us and for the handouts for the students. Much appreciated Rachel!
