An open invitation is extended for the public to join Trees For Canterbury, to participate in a ‘Planting Event’, with the Travis Wetland Trust and the Regional Park Rangers of the Christchurch City Council. The plants donated by Trees for Canterbury will be in the matai – totara forest. The plan is to continue with the creation of a 6ha mixed podocarp forest . Over time this forest will provide habitat for a range of forest birds and invertebrates.

The event is scheduled between 10.00am and 12.30pm on Saturday 15th September at Travis Wetlands and will be followed by a BBQ. Location - meet at the Beach Road car park in Travis Wetland.
