A project to establish a walking track was commenced on this reserve in 2009 and on completion the focus turned to removing predators in order to protect and nurture the endangered fernbird as well as encourage the re-population of this forest remnant which had been mined, felled and farmed till the 1950s.
With the assistance and support of DOC and WRC trapping lines have become established, thousands of wilding pines have been removed, and by 2016 over 4500 native trees have been planted to kickstart forest cover and provide a food source for returning native birds.
