People are invited to participate in this guided walk, led by members of ‘Friends of Tawa Bush Reserves’ (FOTBR). The walk will be through part of Redwood Bush, from Achilles Close through to Peterhouse Street and include the newly established, signed botanical walk. Depending on time, Larsen Crescent Reserve will also be included in the walk.
The tracks are well-formed with a good walking terrain. For those wishing to participate, please meet at the Achilles Close entry, off Oriel Ave at 1.50pm. Initially, some historical details will be given as to how Redwood Bush was saved when the Redwood subdivision began making inroads into the native bush for housing development in the 1970s. The walk, including the return back to Achilles Close, will take about an hour and a half. The walk will proceed whatever the weather and firm shoes are recommended as footwear.
For any queries, please email Secretary, FOTBR:
