Exploration of a dune and shore community with Brian Rance, DOC, Invercargill. We are fortunate to have the services of Brian as our guide as he is very knowledgeable about the plants and ecosystems of the Southland region. The walk would include the Three Sisters Dune (with several threatened plants including the only remaining mainland site of Gunnera hamiltonii (status—Nationally Critical), and 20 other threatened or uncommon species!). We could also look at the coastal turfs towards Barracuda Point. We need to leave Dunedin early to make the most of the day so meet at 7.30 am at the Botany Department car park in Great King Street. If you wish to come please contact David Lyttle so we can arrange transport.
