Harris Scientific Reserve


Lovetts Rd, Winslow, Ashburton

The Harris Scientific Reserve kanuka sanctuary near Ashburton protects one of the last stands of dry-land kanuka in Canterbury. The 2.5ha paddock and its surrounding natural and undisturbed dry-land kanuka stand was purchased by the Ashburton District Council along with an adjoining 8ha paddock to the east.

Forest and Bird were granted a “license to occupy” by the council on condition a trust was set up to manage the site. The total area of 10.5ha is now managed by the Ashburton Community Conservation Trust. The Trust has already planted the 2.5ha area within the natural kanuka border.
