Warranwood Reserve.

Warranwood Reserve is an 11 hectare (27 acres) bushland reserve located in the City of Maroondah, some 26 km east of Melbourne, in the state of Victoria, Australia.

It is situated in a primarily urban area, although larger than average blocks along its eastern boundary allow an extended tree cover and reduce the population pressures which might otherwise exist. Much of the reserve was set aside for drainage purposes and there has been considerable modification to the natural drainage lines and removal of vegetation due to the installation of drainage and sewerage pipes. Despite these site alterations, the reserve still contains a diverse and fascinating variety of flora and fauna, mainly because of its steep slopes and varied aspects.

The reserve is managed and maintained by the Maroondah City Council together with the participation of the Warranwood Landcare Group's community of volunteers .

With the approval and assistance with Maroondah Council, we organise regular activities to maintain and improve Warranwood Reserve and surrounding areas which may negatively impact Warranwood Reserve. Our focus is on weeding & replacing weeds with indigenous plants. No experience is needed. Medium fitness is required. Volunteers should wear sturdy boots and weather appropriate personal, protective equipment. We supply all required tools. These activities help to promote community engagement by enhancing the amenity of the area.
