Norgrove Ave Rock forest trek

August 13th, 2017

STEPS members Derryn, Liz and Sel were joined by supporters April, Anju and local residents Sean, Aden and John in a trek through rock forest remnants near Chamberlain Park on 12 August.

       

Kawakawa and mahoe trees were beside the stream and behind that many large mature privet and an under-storey of asparagus fern. Despite this there were seedling trees growing in places. A few puriri were seen. We collected a few moth plant seeds and had an adventurous walk.

Sandra later joined us and we concluded that with some help on large scale weed clearing, there would be opportunities to restore the lava rock forest here. In the future we will see what opportunities there are to connect to Rawalpindi reserve.  Thanks to everyone for an enjoyable morning.
