Halswell Quarry

16 April at 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Come along and help us to improve the biodiversity of this beautiful spot!

Stone was first taken from the Quarry in the 1860s and it was a working quarry for 130 years up until 1990, when Christchurch City Council made the decision to turn it into a recreation reserve. Since then more than 250, 000 trees and shrubs have been planted, and a wetland has been developed in the lower quarry.

CVNZ assists with releasing plantings and mulching to ensure their ongoing survival. Join us for the morning helping Nigel, the ranger with tasks around the Quarry plantings.

Meet at the Quarterman’s House in the main carpark off Kennedy’s Bush Road.

The project will be from 9:30am-12:30pm, but feel free to come for whatever time you can.

Gloves, tools and morning tea will be provided. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe footwear, a sunhat, and bring along a water bottle. We recommend lightweight long sleeves and trousers as protection from the sun and vegetation.

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

COVID-19: We will be following the advice from government and local council on all Covid-19 restrictions.
