• Port Saddle Restoration

In partnership with the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust, LPC is committed to restoring this land with indigenous flora and fauna and protecting the area to be enjoyed by future generations.

The Lyttelton ‘Port Saddle’ Masterplan covers an area of 17 hectares of LPC owned land, located above the eastern edge of Lyttelton township.

The Port and the Trust has been focused on removing weeds and pests and restoring habitat through planting native trees, lovingly grown from locally collected seeds by the Department of Conservation’s Motukarara Conservation Nursery.

LPC sees the partnership between LPC and BPCT as incredibly important. Our aim is for the area to be used for ecological restoration, recreation and environmental education.

Regular planting days for schools and businesses are held at the Port saddle. Get in touch to find out more.
