Bayview Halo

Do you live within the Halo area?

Bayview is one of the most exciting urban wildlife areas on the North Shore.  Beautiful forests overflowing with wildlife abound in this scenic suburb.  The number of reserves alone exemplifies how special it is; within the Halo can be found Glendhu Scenic reserve, Bonito reserve, Spinella reserve, Lynn reserve, Leigh reserve, Mānuka reserve plus more!

A number of very active volunteers make sure these forests are well cared for.  If you live in Bayview and would like to join the team, or contribute in smaller ways please get in touch.
