Friends of Oratau is a volunteer group set up by local resident Pete to help clear weeds and restore parts of Oratau reserve. The Oratau reserve runs from Orchard reserve off Almond Grove out to Lucas Creek, and is an important stream outlet and bird corridor.  Parts of the reserve are being overcome by a number of noxious weeds and needs our help.  Every Wednesday, Pete and a group of volunteers work in the reserve and welcomes others to join them. Meet at 9:30 am at the end of Oratau Place at the entrance to the Reserve
