n 2003, the Club began an ambitious program to develop the Discovery Area, a recreation of the 1906-1908 construction site for the two dams created to provide water for the growing settlement of Wellington.
The project was completed in 2007 with the construction of a viewing tower to provide commanding views over the entire Sanctuary.
The Discovery project was carried out in collaboration with all the Wellington Rotary Clubs and marked the centenary of Rotary's foundation.
In 2014-15, the Club worked with Zealandia to renovate a building on nearby land for use as an education centre for school groups. The centre provides accomodation for overnight stays.
