During the July KidsFest, Department of Conservation and Toyota launched three new ‘Toyota Kiwi Guardian’ sites in the wider Christchurch area, one of those being our much treasured Ōtukaikino. To introduce Ōtukaikino as one of the new sites, DOC hosted a guided walk, lead by Helen McCaughan from Wildlands. Along the way Helen pointed out all the natural wonders Ōtukaikino has to offer, including (much to the children’s delight) some of the local eels.

A special thanks to Toyota for providing the sausages and for the spot prizes awarded by DOC and Toyota.
