Willowbank Care Group
This group is for those in the vicinity of Willowbank Scenic Reserve, Tawa, Wellington, who want to help to look after the ecology and heritage of the area, which is 5.5 ha in size. This means doing planting of native vegetation, looking after those plants, picking up litter, caring for the stream and the eels and other life within the stream, combating pests such as blackberry, broome, gorse, convovulus and whatever else is growing there, cherishing and enhancing the heritage and ecological values.
Our group has been working in the Willowbank Reserve near the Takapu Rd railway station for several years.
We invite people who use the Reserve whether cycling, running, walking your dog/s etc or passing through on the way to the railway station to join us on the
