Gladrose Reserve contains a mosaic of vegetation types ranging from dry sclerophyll on the ridges, gradually becoming wetter as you move down the slope, and riparian rainforest along Wongawallan Creek. Restoration Works presently occurring in the Reserve include GCCC Engineering Services who maintain plantings on the western edge of Zone 1 and the NAMU restoration team who endeavour to maintain the core area in-stream of the plantings in Zone 1. The community group previously active on the site have recently disbanded, and although no longer work on the site have a continuing interest in the works being undertaken.
