Friends of Birdwood Reserve are a group of dedicated volunteers working to restore an important area of urban native forest in the Kaiwharawhara Stream valley. Key activities include weed and rubbish clearance, tree planting, track building, and visitor education.

Forest type is Lowland Broadleaf-Podocarp, with a mix of remnant and regenerating areas. The valley floor is generally fertile, and retains moisture year-round - a great habitat for planting the now uncommon Swamp Maire.

We always welcome new members, so feel free to send us an email, like our Facebook page, or just head along to one of our events!
