The Alterno Foundation is pleased to again support the Rata-Tui Restoration Trust. This second grant is to assist with costs to construct a boardwalk on the latest track built last summer - 2km long “La Rambla”.
The Rata-Tui Restoration Trust purchased Motupipi hill for the purpose of conservation plus providing an area for public recreation.
Motupipi hill is easily accessible to the population centres of Takaka and Pohara.
The mountain bike tracks (open to cyclists, walkers, runners) are being built with help from volunteers with the tracks also providing access for weed control, pest control and planting.
The Alterno Foundation sees this as an opportunity to contribute to a project led by local enthusiasts and with the potential for the wider public to experience a beautiful part of New Zealand while exercising to keep fit and healthy.
