Our place

Greening our red zone

Travel with us to a Christchurch that is home to kereru and kahikatea, tui and totara, morepork and matai...

A Christchurch where there is walking, running, and cycling – through a red zone forest alive with bird song, and children’s laughter…
… where people kayak through wetlands rich in wildlife
… and families catch healthy fish in a clean river…
… where children have free, easy access to our unique environment
​… all while breathing clean city air – even in winter.

Join us on our campaign to green the Avon River red zone, to create Avon-Otakaro Forest Park.
