Friends of Greendale Reserve

The project is to revegetate about 4 hectares of run-down land along a stream, in a semi-rural area. The aims are to increase the beauty of the area, the number and biodiversity of plants, birds, fish and invertebrates.
The reserve will form part of a bird corridor between the hills and the Waikanae River.
Tuis and wood pigeons are regularly seen in the reserve. Kakariki and NZ falcon have been seen at times.
