The Travis Wetland Trust was formed in 1992 and continues to work tirelessly for the protection of Christchurch’s largest freshwater wetland.
Ōruapaeroa/Travis Wetland is the last large freshwater wetland in Christchurch - an important habitat for native wetland plants and birds - and a living example of the power of community volunteering.
Meet outside the Travis Wetland Education Centre
Celebrate World Wetlands Day with a guided walk to the rapidly expanding native forest at the Southern end of the the wetland. This will be a gentle introduction to the site where much of the Trust's planting work has occurred over the past decade. A BBQ will follow.
Gumboots are advised as it can be very wet in places but if you don't have any, there will be some spares available.
Contact Council Ranger John Skilton on 027 4968 935 for more information.
Meet at the Travis Wetland car park on Beach Road.
