Tawatawa Reserve is one of Wellington's hidden jewels. Well-known to dog-owners as a place to let their dogs run freely, this reserve offers much more than just a place to walk a dog. It 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 whÄrangi, an attractive tree that is regionally uncommon.
On this day, we will be supporting the Southern Environmental Association with their restoration work as we share the same vision of seeing this area mature and develop through positive conservation work - and we are calling on your help to make this happen! We'll be lending a helping hand with weed control, planting, and nursery work to help SEA realise their vision of a healthy forested reserve.
What to wear/bring: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, hat/beanie, waterproof jacket, water bottle and snacks
What we provide: tools, gloves, an experienced team leader, free transport from the city centre or our office in Melrose
Get in touch if you'd like to be involved, we'd love your help!
