Tawatawa Reserve is one of Wellington's hidden jewels. Located between Owhiro Bay and Island Bay, the Tawatawa Reserve is a vital local amenity which we are proud to support. Well-known to dog-owners as a place to let their dogs run freely, this reserve offers spectacular views from the ridges and a wide range of tracks provide walks of various lengths and degrees of difficulty. It also contains some of the oldest ngaio trees in Wellington and a large number of wharangi, an attractive tree that is regionally uncommon.
On this day, we will be supporting the Southern Environmental Association with their ongoing restoration work - and we are calling on your help to make this happen! We'll be lending a helping hand with track contruction, planting and possbily some weeding and/or nursery work.
What we provide: tools, gloves, an experienced team leader, and training. Free transport available from the city centre or our office in Melrose.
What to wear/bring: sturdy boots essential, long sleeves and pants, hat/beanie, waterproof jacket, water bottle and lunch.
This project requires a medium-high level of fitness as the track is steep in parts. Get in touch if you'd like to be involved, we'd love your help!
