Reforest Northern Southland
Creating community spaces for wildlife to flourish and people to enjoy
Reforest Southland is a community nursery and reforestation trust, with the aim of bringing native flora and fauna back to the area, and promoting community growth and ecological education.
Our focus is on growing, replanting and regenerating areas of native bush, from riparian and marginal planting to larger reserves and parks, for the benefit of the local eco-system and the enjoyment of the local community.
We currently have two projects underway, replanting Lumsden Creek and our Community Nursery.
If you would like to be involved in either, please do get in touch.
Replanting Lumsden Creek
Planting has started at Lumsden Creek!
The area between the old railway bridge and SH6 has been replanted with native trees and shrubs to encourage wildlife and create a space for locals to enjoy and be proud of. The next stage will be planting up the creek, in the area between the bridge and Hill Road.
Our next planting day is coming soon – sign up for updates.
We are in the early stages of setting up our community nursery, which will be located in central Lumsden. It will be a place for learning and community building, as well as a place to grow plants for our revegetation projects and for other community groups.
The nursery will be open to everyone, of all ages and skills to enjoy and learn.
