Join Christchurch City Council Rangers for planting and maintenance days across the seasons in our unique and stunning Port Hills.
The volunteer programme restores and maintains native forest in designated areas of the Port Hills. Volunteers plant native trees each winter and maintain them in spring and autumn to reduce competition from grass.
Maintenance is the most critical part of ecological restoration success. Without regular maintenance for the first three years, plants wouldn't survive due to grass competition.
Keen to help native plants survive the summer? Join us next spring for our maintenance days.
