Avon Ōtākaro Forest Park has taken the decision to suspend all our working bees and planting events across our sites with the current Covid-19 pandemic and will resume activity as soon as it is safe to do so.

 

We will publish regular articles on both our website and facebook page to keep discussions going on creating a forest and wetland park in the Red Zone. We appreciate your support and understanding at this difficult time.

 

Feel free to contact us during this period as we want to stay in touch with our supporters
