Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway Canterbury Trust (TAK) is an incorporated Charitable Trust with the goal of increasing biodiversity in Canterbury by creating a Greenway linking the mountains to the sea or Banks Peninsula and Te Waihora / Lake Ellesmere.
We work with private and public landowners to undertake restoration projects that will one day become stepping stones in the Greenway. Work is undertaken in the Selwyn District between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers.
We run three programmes:
The Greendot Programme
The Annual Canterbury Plantouts
