Black Hill Reserve is managed by 'The Friends Of Black Hill', a group formed in 1979. Over the years many thousands of trees have been planted, walking tracks created including many hundreds of steps on the steeper sections. Drainage channels have been dug, with pipes buried under walking tracks to reduce flooding and erosion.

Picnic tables, Rotunda and Information Boards, together with walking track signs have been installed.

Close to 80 nesting boxes have been installed throughout the reserve to provide lodgings to the wide variety of fauna that calls Black Hill home.

The Friends Of Black Hill these days comprise a motivated group of local volunteers and their families, old and young. 
New members are always welcome, just contact us! 
Meetings and working bees are held throughout the year, usually involving much socialising and a BBQ lunch.

The Friends Of Black Hill find it necessary to negotiate for grants and funding in order to continue the good work. All contributions towards the worthy cause are also very welcome!

Inside the main entrance gate there is a plaque recognizing the efforts and direction of founding member Carl Neilson. Carl has laboured strenuously for many years, developing the Reserve and controlling erosion with only a shovel and his helpers!  Carl always keeps a spare shovel in his truck, so watch out if you see him, you might be given a job!
