Kaitiaki of Newton Reserve (KNR)
KNR cares for the public reserve that runs along the coast from Little Oneroa to Fisherman's Rock and up Newton Valley to the intersection of Queens Drive and Newton Road. We plant eco-sourced natives, remove noxious plant species, and control pests including rats and rabbits.
KNR weeds in summer and plants in winter, at working bees held on the second Sunday of each month, starting at 10am. We provide lunch and a cold beer afterwards, but there is no other reimbursement.
It is physical work, requiring sturdy shoes and often gumboots in the wetter months.
