Sustainability: Primary pupils take to restoration activities at Port Saddle

LPC in partnership with the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust and Enviroschools have been engaging with Lyttelton Harbour / Whakaraupō schools since 2017 at the Port Saddle, located above the Port’s Lyttelton site.

The primary students trekked up and participated in restoration activities in their local environment as part of LPC’s celebration of Conservation Week.

Pest management, planting, biodiversity monitoring, lizards and birds were all features of the day, and contributing towards our biodiversity positive goals. Students were able to learn from experts and share their own knowledge while surrounded by birdsong.

The Port Saddle provides an opportunity for outdoor learning and participation to achieve a net gain in biodiversity over time.

Many thanks to the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust, Enviroschools, Boffa Miskell and the Schools for all their help and support of the Port Saddle.
