Field Trip to Lower Taieri Gorge

Saturday 10th June, 2017

Start time: 9:00 AM

Finish time: 4:00 PM

Bad weather caused the postponement of this trip last year so we'll give it another try this year. The 8 km long Taieri River and Millennium track follows the true right of the lower Taieri River from the end of Taieri Ferry Road near Henley, through to Taieri Mouth. It traverses interesting dry hillslope broadleaved forest with many rare species including fragrant tree daisy, fierce lancewood, native verbena, wind grass and Coprosma obconica. We'll leave a car at Taieri Mouth so that drivers can be returned to their vehicles. Depart Botany car park at 9 am return mid afternoon.
