Meningie's Pelican Path - Yunti Ngopun Ngami
The Friends of Meningie and the Lower Lakes and Coorong Recovery team have created a wonderful Pelican Path, Meningie's new interpretive trail.
The Pelican Path is an interpretive walk which highlights the European, Aboriginal and environmental history of the Meningie region.
The trail is the first step in restoring habitat along Meningie's lakefront for local wildlife, and to improve Lake Albert's health in the Meningie area. It also aims to make the lakefront even more attractive for the local community and visitors to enjoy.
The environmentally sensitive design of the trail includes a 400 metre textured pathway, interpretive signage, seating and viewing platforms. It focuses on the importance of the environment to the region, local community and the Ngarrindjeri, as well as the area's history.
Community volunteers planted more than 1,000 native plants along the foreshore as part of the project to improve habitat along the lakefront.
This project is part of the South Australian Government's Murray Futures program funded by the Australian Government's Water for the Future strategy.
