Come along and help us to improve the biodiversity of this beautiful spot! 

Stone was first taken from the Quarry in the 1860s and it was a working quarry for 130 years up until 1990, when Christchurch City Council made the decision to turn it into a recreation reserve. Since then more than 250, 000 trees and shrubs have been planted, and a wetland has been developed in the lower quarry.  

CVNZ assists with releasing plantings and mulching to ensure their ongoing survival. Join us for the morning helping Nigel, the ranger with tasks around the Quarry plantings. 

Join our residential volunteers for a morning. 

Meet at 9:30am in the main Quarry carpark near the coffee cart. 

Bring your own gardening gloves, sturdy boots or shoes and a water bottle. Please wear long sleeves and pants for protection from long grass and gorse etc.

Registrations for this project are essential to ensure we have enough tools. Contact Donna at dlusby@cvnz.org.nz or 021 457 568 for more information.

COVID-19: We will be following the advice from government and local council on all Covid-19 restrictions.
