Moves are afoot to buy these iconic maunga overlooking Whakaraupo – find out how you can be part of this land becoming a conservation park on our doorstep – Te Ahu Patiki.
This week’s speaker is Cynthia Roberts, a Trustee of the Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust. The Trust was established by Christchurch City Council to promote environmental sustainability on Banks Peninsula. Here is a quote from their website.
Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust has a vision to develop environmental guardians of the future through improved public walking and biking access, enhancing biodiversity, promoting knowledge and working in partnership with others who share our commitment to Banks Peninsula.
The Trust has embarked on its most exciting, and challenging, project to purchase Te Ahu Pātiki a 500ha of iconic land above Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour, including the two highest peaks on Banks Peninsula. With your help this land will become a conservation park for biodiversity restoration with full public access.
Cynthia will speak about the Trust and this exciting project. Here’s a link to the Rod Donald Trust website https://roddonaldtrust.co.nz/.
