Half Day Native Orchid Tour
October 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm$90
You will amazed at the number and variety of orchids within a short distance of Hobart city. Join a local Tasmanian native orchid expert who has been studying, growing and mapping our exquisite, but diminutive, native orchids for over a decade. Over the last 7 years, Geoff has been GPS way-pointing and recording the locations and variety of orchid species throughout the state. With a keen eye & incredible knowledge on the subject, you will be introduced to the unique and quirky characteristics of our state’s native orchids- including their habitat, reproduction methods and distinguishing features.
The half day workshop includes all transport (in a comfortable Mercedes mini-bus!), a simple morning tea, field notes, and a set of high quality digital images for those who want them (they can be tricky plants to capture!) BYO lunch for grumbling tummies!
