Trip led by Mike Thorsen, DoC. Times to be confirmed. Akatore is a remnant of diverse coastal shrubland at the mouth of Akatore Creek 45 minutes south of Dunedin. Some special features of this site include the diversity of shrub species and threatened species such as Coprosma obconica, Olearia fragrantissima, and Carex littorosa with the possibility of our discovering other threatened species. We'll also visit the adjacent coast where the threatened cress Lepidium tenuicaule is present as well as Myosotis pygmaea.
