Calder Green Reserve Lizard Sanctuary Work Day

27/05/2018 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Carpark at the Ferrymead end of the track in to the reserve –  google map.

This year work will be on maintaining the Calder Green Reserve area and a ‘greenfield’ planting to set up the Heathcote-Opawaho Lizard Sanctuary. This is to be an open sanctuary near the pylons and next to the Calder Green Reserve. Having very occasionally spotted some Common and McCann’s skinks over recent years, a project plan was formulated to increase the odds by improving the local habitat and continue the good work done to date in this area. This a community partnership project with the CCC Parks Unit. The aim is to provide a restored habitat with plants being selected for shelter and food source for skinks.
