The Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust (BPCT) and Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) would like to invite you and your family to join us in a planting day to help restore our native vegetation at the Port Saddle.
The Port Saddle sits on the eastern ridgeline of Lyttelton, next to Urumau Reserve. BPCT and LPC have a long-term partnership to create a place for community recreational use, ecological protection and enhancement of the indigenous flora and fauna. This event is part of Conservation Week 2021 - www.conservationweek.org.nz and will contribute to the long-term goals of ecological restoration.
Location: Port Saddle: access is through Urumau Reserve at the end of Foster Terrace in Lyttelton. Meet either at the corner of London and Oxford Street, at 9.45 am or at the entrance to the Port Saddle site.
