Dear Members and Friends:
I invite you to join this exceptional expedition to explore New Zealand.
We have added some special botanical features to our classic New Zealand natural history itinerary this year, including superb
botanic gardens near Wellington and Auckland. We are delighted that supporters of the Pacific Horticulture Society will be joining us this year.
We are delighted that one of the top naturalists in
New Zealand, Lloyd Esler, will again be our leader
on this expedition. Lloyd has explored much of the New
Zealand natural world, and is a historical researcher as
well. He writes and illustrates popular scientific articles
on New Zealand topics, and is an experienced trip
leader. Lloyd looks forward to showing you the cultural
and natural delights of this fascinating island nation.
From kiwis to kakas, temperate rainforests to
glacial valleys, New Zealand possesses a rich heritage.
The geologic forces are as dynamic as anywhere on
earth, and can be seen in the fascinating geyserfields
in Rotorua, in the plunging cliffs at Milford Sound, in
the spectacular peaks and glaciers of the Southern
Alps, and along the rugged shore. Some of the most
spectacular scenery in the world is preserved in New
Zealand’s national parks, many of which we will visit
on this expedition.
I hope you will join our New Zealand Expedition. As space is limited, we encourage you to make
reservations right away.
