Creating a native greenway linking the mountains to the sea to increase biodiversity in Canterbury.
Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway Canterbury Trust is an incorporated Charitable Trust.
Our vision is to create a native greenway (a network of patches of native vegetation) that spans the Canterbury Plains linking the mountains to the sea, providing habitat for native birds and invertebrates.
So far Te Ara Kākāriki have planted over 84,000 native plants through our three programmes.
The Kids Discovery Plantout: Working with schools in Selwyn on public restoration sites.
Greendot Programme: Providing advice and funding to private landowners and community groups to restore native habitat.
Canterbury Plantout Days: Organised planting events with volunteers on private or public land.
Te Ara Kākāriki are working with landowners, community groups and volunteers to plant a native Greenway, linking the mountains to the sea between the Rakaia and Waimakariri Rivers.
