The Friends of Ernle Clark reserve began in July 2006 to care for school revegetation plantings in this area and tidy up the reserve in general.
In Spring we hold a "Sycamore Slaughter" to get rid of young sycamore seedlings, and we also have a trapping programme underway in the Reserve.
Working bees are held on the last Saturday of the month 3.00 - 4.00pm in winter, and 4.00 - 5.00pm in summer.
We are an informal group that operates as a collective. The key group members have been volunteering in the reserve since it began:
Ernle Clark reserve runs along the true left of the Opawaho Heathcote river between Colombo Street and Barrington Street. There are entrance ways at the end of Ernlea Terrace, by the Barrington Street bridge round-about, at the eastern end of Studholme Street and off Thorrington St.
