Where?: Pourewa Reserve, 111 Kepa Road.
Pourewa Reserve has recently been returned to the ownership of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei who aim to restore the mauri (life force) of the land. BioBlitz will provide them with data to inform their restoration plan. BioBlitz also recorded which species occur in the adjacent Kepa Bush, as this will act as a reservoir for Pourewa.
