OUR VISION

Our vision is to transform the Avon River Red Zone into a vibrant, city-to-sea native forest park along the Avon-Otakaro River. 

We believe this land should be returned to nature, creating a ribbon of green from the the town centre to New Brighton. A forest park would provide a setting for sensitive recreation, a catalyst for regeneration and tourism, protection from flooding and pollution and enhance our city. It will also create an ecological paradise for native flora and fauna and a clean, green forest park to be enjoyed by all. We advocate for a simple, common sense approach that works with nature to remediate this land for the good of the community and our natural environment. Our forest park proposal is low cost, low impact with huge benefits and returns both directly and indirectly.

Aug 28: Due to the current Covid 19 Alert Levels - all working bees are suspended until further notice. More information will be provided via our Facebook page.
