New funding application

We have submitted a Communities of Nature application for funding to  restore the small Reserve section encircled by old Coalville Road.

This section is particularly weed infested and we hope to address the weed problem, re-vegetate and enhance the local flora. Almost every local weed is represented in this small area, including cotoneaster, pittosporum, blackberry, thistle, ivy, asparagus fern, three cornered garlic, periwinkle and broom.

If the application is successful, we intend to learn about weed management during the restoration process and apply this knowledge to the remainder of the Reserve.
