Remnant Swamp Maire and Pukatea Forest Restoration Project.

Hammond Park is a regionally significant remnant of indigenous forest that occupies a terrace adjacent to the Waikato River in Hamilton City.

This floristically diverse riparian margin is home to a range of species such as the rare native long-tailed bat, swamp maire, tui, bellbird, glow worms and ruru (morepork) to name a few.

The bush area 'hangs' between the upper scarp and lower scarp, or cliff face, which falls to the river. The land form features surface and subsurface water flows in this area that has lead to the characteristic swamp or semi-swamp forest type.

A key feature of this site is a small population of swamp maire (Syzygium maire), which has become locally and regionally rare.

The Riverlea Environment Society Inc (RESI) are undertaking a forest and riverside restoration project based on a report by the Centre of Biodiversity and Ecology Research (CBER) 'A Restoration Plan for Hammond Bush' for Hamilton City Council.

The objectives of this group are to protect and enhance the environment as well as other amenity values of the area. The group engages with local government organisations on matters of planning and resource consents or processes that may impact the quality of life in this area.

*PLEASE do not attend if you have 'Flu' like symptoms due to COVID-19. Please check www.covid-19.govt.nz for further information and current protocols.
