Lincoln Mahoe Native Reserve 20th Birthday in the Bush!

Come and Discover Lincoln’s Hidden Gem.

Join us in commemorating a significant milestone as we celebrate the 20th birthday of the Mahoe Native Reserve. This special event marks two decades of dedicated conservation efforts restoring our natural heritage.

It will be an afternoon of exploration and discovery at the Reserve. This event offers an opportunity to learn about the Reserve’s fascinating history and ongoing conservation efforts. From its humble beginnings as a gravel pit, the Reserve has transformed into a thriving ecosystem and a living laboratory for native flora and fauna. 

Guided Walk: Explore the native bush as a guide leads you on a walk through the Reserve. Discover the diverse range of plant species, spot native birds, and learn about the importance of preserving this habitat.

Living Laboratory: Take part in activities that will give you an insight into the Reserve’s role as a living laboratory for research and conservation. Understand how schools and conservation scientists use the Reserve to study the ecosystem and gather data, that can be used to protect other natural areas.

Refreshments: Take a break and enjoy a delightful afternoon tea in the surroundings of the Reserve. Relax, socialize, and reflect.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Mahoe Native Reserve Birthday in the Bush and sharing the beauty and importance of this remarkable area right in the heart of Lincoln.
