Travis Wetland / Ōruapaeroa Spring Planting Day

19 September at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

An open invitation is extended for the public to join Trees for Canterbury, to participate in a ‘planting day’, with the Travis Wetland Trust and the Regional Park Rangers of the Christchurch City Council.

The plants donated by Trees for Canterbury will be planted to extend the dry/coastal forest adjacent to the Beach Road entrance. This forest will be a mix of Kanuka, Ngaio, Totara and small leaved Coprosma species. Over time this forest will provide habitat for a range of forest birds and invertebrates.

Travis Wetland, noted for its regenerating native bush and wildlife habitat, is the largest remaining area of fresh water wetland in Christchurch. The event is scheduled between 10.00am and 12.30pm on Saturday 19th September at Travis Wetlands and will be followed by a BBQ.

Location – meet at the Beach Road car park in Travis Wetland. Look for signs directing you to planting site which is a short walk into the reserve.

Bring along family, friends and a spade. Bring gumboots if you have them but if you don’t we have a limited supply for loan.
