Charlesworth Reserve Planting and Plant Maintenance

18 September at 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Location: Brookhaven, Christchurch

Get directions
Departs from: Charlesworth St, Brookhaven

This 20 ha of land bordered by Linwood Ave and Humphries drive was drained and from 1920’s much was pasture-land. From 1991 the Christchurch City Council cleared the paddocks, scraped tidal pools and in 2005 the reserve was oficially opened. Since 2005 just over 110,000 trees, shrubs and saltmarsh plants have been planted, largely by volunteers coordinated by the Estuary Trust and supervised by Andrew Crossland – CCC Park Ranger.

Today we’ll be doing a variety of tasks from planting and plant maintenance to pruning.

We provide: tools, gloves, morning tea and a friendly team leader. Please wear sturdy shoes or boots, warm clothing, and bring a water bottle.

We’d love to see you there, so please register here. Contact Donna (dlusby@cvnz.org.nz) 021 457 568 for more information.
