Travis Wetland is an important site for the local and regional conservation of wetland plants. Nearly 80 per cent of pre-European native wetland plant species are present in the wetland, including some now rare on the Canterbury Plains. There are around 53 species of native and introduced birds, including around fifty percent of the population of pukeko in Christchurch.
Tasks vary, and include planting in the wetland (we can supply gumboots if you need), weeding and tasks in the small onsite nursery.
Come and join us for the morning – 10am-12pm. Tools, gloves and morning tea are supplied. Bring drinking water and wear sturdy footwear.
