We'll look at the sand dune of the Tavora Reserve. This was marram-dominated, but the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust have been planting pikao and other native dune species, which has worked quite well. We'll look at the podocarp / broadleaved forest of Goodwood Scenic Reserve, one of the very best remaining remnants of coastal forest in East Otago. The Trust have also been doing restoration planting along the stream that leads to the dunes, and along a corridor from Goodwood reserve to the sea. Leave 9 am from the Botany Department car park, return mid-late afternoon. Rain date Sunday at 12 noon. Leader Bastow Wilson, (03) 472 8999 or 021 144 8228
