About Us

As one of the largest branches in New Zealand, the North Canterbury branch covers Canterbury north of the Rakaia River up into the heart of the Lewis Pass, from the sea to the Alps.


We hold monthly public meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm. Details of the venue for each meeting will be posted on the website and emailed out to members. Guest speakers discuss various environmental topics and issues and all are welcome to attend.

Meetings are generally held in the WEA building, 59 Gloucester St (opposite the Christchurch Art Gallery).

Trips and Events

We organise regular trips and events, details of which will be posted on the website and notices sent to all members. See our programme here.


We send regular newsletters to our members. Please read latest issue here.

Save a tree, get your newsletter by email! If you are happy to receive your newsletter via email rather than by hard copy, then please email us and let us know. It costs a lot to print and post the newsletters, not to mention the impact on the environment, so get eco-friendly and get our newsletters by email.
