Greendale Reserve is in Otaihanga, Paraparaumu. It is located between
Greendale Drive and King Arthur Drive
New Zealand

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.
The group describes itself as “several overeducated peasants doing time”. Between us we have skills in weed, bird and plant identification. We have knowledge of plant requirements. One of our group has pest trapping skills.
We receive help with the heavier work of chain-sawing and spraying of weeds from a KCDC employee and a contractor.
