Canterbury Plant Out

Registrations are now open for the 2014 Canterbury Plantout – two fun-filled days organised by Te Ara Kākāriki and its partners – including Whakaora Te Waihora.

The two days are designed to encourage locals to plant native plants that will help build a green corridor for native birds, running from the mountains to the sea.

The lower catchment day (around Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere) will be held on Saturday September 6. The upper catchment day, around Hororata, will be held on September 20. There is a $5 registration fee for adults and children are free. Register at:
