Whewell's Bush Scientific Reserve at Tamahere.

This reserve is an 11ha kahikatea stand that is normally accessible by permit only.

The Tamahere Gully Care group has a permit and intend to look at the trees and to assist the Whewell's Bush Volunteer group with bagging tradescantia. Extra hands will make all the difference to getting the job done. Bring your gardening gloves.


The reserve can be accessed from Swallow Lane - a short no-exit road off Tauwhare Road between Bruntwood and Lee Martin Roads. Park on the roadside beside the bridge.

Be at the entrance around 1.20pm as we will depart from the bridge at 1.30pm. Latecomers may have difficulty locating the group - they are walking through to the far side of the reserve.

There are a number of drains that need to be  crossed either by jumping or going through them so gumboots are recommended.
