Greening our red zone
After the earthquakes of 2010-2011, Christchurch has a once-in-several-lifetimes opportunity to bring nature back into the heart of the city.
We can create a red zone forest and wetland park, that benefits not just a few, but ALL of the city. Just as our forebears left us Hagley Park so our legacy can be Avon-Otakaro Forest Park.
Watch the video and read the following pages to find out how creating a forest and wetland park in the Avon River red zone will improve the health and wellbeing of our plants, animals, lands – and people.
Join us on our campaign to green the Avon River red zone, to create a forest and wetland park that is our generation's ecological legacy for all of Christchurch.
Featured page: Wetlands
Wetlands are important and widely undervalued ecosystems. They play an essential role in easing the effects human settlement has on our environment. We need to put back some of the wetlands we have lost, before it’s too late.
