We will travel to Alexandra and visit the DoC Springvale and Chapman Road Reserves to see native spring annuals and some rare dryland plants. The tiny buttercup relatives Ceratocephala pungens and Myosurus minimus subsp. novae-zelandiae will be flowering. Other plants that are likely to be present on these dry saline sites are Myosotis brevis, Lepidium kirkii, Atriplex buchananii, Raoulia beauverdii and Ryditosperma merum. Leaders David Lyttle and John Barkla.
