To have field trips together to explore nature. We may also have the occasional meeting – to look at photos, or to learn how to make equipment etc.

Any participant is welcome to contribute blog posts.


Any interested CHE members are welcome – trips are suitable for all ages.

We have weekly field trips, exploring local nature; animals, plants, fungi, geology etc. Trips are to nearby locations, such as the Port Hills, wetlands, forest, grasslands, and the coast.

Trips are on Monday mornings, from 10-12. Details of upcoming trips, and trip reports, are posted here.

Also,  please note,  children need to be with a parent/guardian.

Ideas about what to bring on field trips

  • Sensible clothing (sturdy shoes, hats etc.)
  • Any food or drink you might want
  • Camera
  • Notebook and pencil(s)
  • Observations containers
  • Identification books/apps
  • Magnifying glass
  • Collecting net
  • Binoculars
  • Suggestions for other locations to visit
