Getting there: The 13 hectare reserve is located 8km east of Rata, on Putorino Road off SH1, near Marton.
The reserve is situated at the end of Waite Rd, approximately 7km north-west of Pirongia in the Waikato.
Kererū, tūī, bellbird, North Island fantail, grey warbler and silvereye.
Crocodile Island is a small sand island with re-generating bush in the Orewa Estuary, not far off the Orewa College grounds and accessible by foot at low tide.
Walking tracks: The reserve has one circular track that takes an hour to complete.
A project to clear Darwin’s barberry (Berberis darwinii), blackberry and other exotic pest plants, abandoned cars, and household rubbish from a neglected reserve and transform it into one that resembles a natural unmodified forest with wetland.
This reserve is temporarily closed pending a safety inspection of the access bridge. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Please check this webpage for updates.
Kapiti-Mana Branch of Forest and Bird has an active Kiwi Conservation Club (KCC). It's awesome.
They also meet up with other KCC members from the wider Wellington region to have adventures together.
Field Reserve is located on SH1 opposite and immediately north of the Kapiti Island Lookout, 1.6km north-east of Paraparaumu and 3km south-west from Waikanae. The reserve is about 4kms from the coastline (Paraparaumu Beach).
Karaka Cove was the first local reserve to have a pest control plan put into action, with Auckland Council supplying all the traps.
In 1964, Forest & Bird purchased 550 hectares of land in the Tautuku region with funds bequested by Mrs Lenz. This land, known today as the Lenz Reserve, consists predominantly of regenerating kamahi/rimu/rata forest.
A project to restore a neglected gully, overgrown with weed and littered with rubbish, that runs between Epuni Street and Tanera Park in Aro Valley. Our vision is that this 'wilderness' area will, in time, resemble a pre-European forest.
Supporting Forest & Bird is one of the best things you can do for New Zealand's environment. We need people like you to support us, so that nature will always have a voice.
