Otari’s fernery will be used to learn some of the fern groups in New Zealand, with a focus on some of the species common around Wellington. Please bring a magnifying glass or hand lens if you can. Magnification allows a better appreciation of some of the distinguishing features. Duration around two hours. Limited to 20 people.
