Learn ferns in Wellington, 2

Are you interested in learning more about ferns, and in the Wellington region?

The talk in March was so popular that Otari have asked me back for round two.  I’ll lead a walking-talk through the fernery at the wonderful Otari-Wilton’s Bush, Sunday 23rd June 2013, beginning 2pm from the Otari Information Centre.

There are two major groups of tree ferns in New Zealand.  One is scaly (Cyathea, at left); the other hairy (Dicksonia, at right). See them up close at Otari.  Photos Leon Perrie, © Te Papa.

    The 23rd June 2013 walking talk has been cancelled because of storm damage to the Otari fernery.
