EcoFest: Restore Pacific Parade Coastal Reserve with RHB

Event by: Restore Hibiscus and Bays

Get hands-on in the bush this EcoFest, with Restore Hibiscus and Bays.

At the end of the Whangaparāoa Peninsula, just before Shakespear Regional Park is this beautiful coastal esplanade reserve. RHB has teamed up with some local residents to take out the invasive weeds and restore the natural habitat. More natural habitat means there is more chance that the rare native species of birds, lizards and insects that reside within the sanctuary of Shakespear may be able to spread their wings and move along the peninsula into this reserve. Already, one of the volunteers has heard a tīeke/saddleback in this area which is pretty exciting. See you there!

WHERE: Meet at the reserve entrance next to 156 Pacific Parade.

WHEN: This regular working bee is on the first Saturday of the month, every month 10 – 12pm.

This is a great opportunity to meet other locals interested in restoring and protecting our local environment, and to learn more about native plant and animal species and how we care for and protect them.
