In partnership with Christchurch City Council, as part of the Rotary Forests of Peace and Remembrance, Conservation Volunteers NZ are helping to create a forest in the Dallington area of Christchurch's Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.

We'll be planting around 40,000 different trees, shrubs and grasses to increase biodiversity and recreate a forest-type environment along the banks of the Ōtākaro Avon River.

The planting will take place from 1pm to 3pm and will be followed by a BBQ.

To access the site, turn off River Road into Dallington Terrace. Parking is through the gate alongside the river. Bike parking is even closer.

We'll provide tools and team leaders. Please bring gardening gloves, a water bottle and wear sturdy footwear.
