    Planting Days

    Trees For Canterbury is planting over 400 native plants at Orton Bradley Park on Sunday 31st July beginning at 10.00 am as part of their continuing community revegetation and biodiversity enhancement project. Park by the historic school house, and you will be guided to the planting site. Just look for the signs. This key event is part of an ongoing partnership between the community, Trees for Canterbury and the Orton Bradley Park Board.

    Orton Bradley Park is located in Charteris Bay at the southern end of Lyttelton Harbour: You can get there by travelling from Christchurch about 26km either through the tunnel to Lyttelton or over Dyers Pass Road to Governors Bay. Follow the road to Teddington and on to Charteris Bay. It will take about 30 minutes to get there. Signs will be out on the day in Charteris Bay to guide you to the areas for planting.
