Located in Island Bay, the Paekawakawa Reserve is an example of a success story for the local community.  This small piece of land was purchased by the Island Bay Natural Heritage Charitable Trust in 2006 when it was up for grabs for development. Once the Trust attained the land, they placed a QEII Covenant on the reserve and commenced to develop the area into a safe haven for native trees and birds, as well as for the local community.

Through the development of a number of tracks, weed clearance, and planting projects the area has come a long way from where it was when it was first purchased.  On this day our task will be to maintain this season's plantings by removing competing weeds from around their bases, and possibly a bit of clearing to with the aim of enhancing the native biodiversity in this urban reserve. Come along and check out this grassroots community project and help enhance the native biodiversity in this urban reserve!
