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.
