REAL Challenge idea - Year 4s

Environment and Sustainability - ES2 : Participate in the Travis Wetlands or other local planting /restoration day with a family member

Port Hills Volunteer Restoration Planting

Get involved in healing the Port Hills following the devastating fires by taking part in one of 12 public planting days.
We will be replanting three burnt restoration sites; Kennedy's Bush, Marleys Hill and Mt Ada.
Mt Ada is the only site suitable for families with young children (8 or younger) to attend. Please check the CCC website for the dates for Mt Ada plantings. The Kennedys Bush site involves a ten minute downhill walk in and a 15-minute uphill walk out again. The Marleys Hill site has some steep terrain.
Numbers of volunteers at each planting day will be limited to 80. You must register here for a seat on the bus that will be transporting volunteers to each site. There will be no parking at the restoration sites.
The bus ride is free thanks to the support of Environment Canterbury. Meet the bus at Princess Margaret Hospital.
You will need to bring: 
- Clothes for all weather, sun hat or woolly hat 
- Sturdy boots 
- Gardening gloves and a named, sharp spade if you have one (some will be provided)
Please check back for postponement notifications; these will be posted on the Christchurch City Council website 3 pm the day before an event.
For any queries, please contact Ranger Di Carter,
