Waiatarua Reserve

The Waiatarua Reserve is a unique haven in the midst of the city for people and birds. We are a community group working towards making the Waiatarua Reserve a unique ecological jewel for residents and for future generations by;

  • Planting native trees and shrubs to provide year-round food for birds and insects
  • Carrying out a volunteer pest control program with Auckland City Council Parks to control rats and possums which decimate the birdlife and new tree growth.

The Reserve is a great place to come walking the dog, running, playing with the family and we also want to make it a place where forest and wetland birds, butterflies and insects can live and flourish.

We welcome new members. If you would like to contact us and / or to join in on any community plantings or the volunteer pest control program, please click on the box below.
