Canterbury Botanical Society, Field Day Saturday February 14th

I won’t be able to attend but the first field day for 2015 will be to Lake Forsyth.  Exploring both freshwater and saline habitats on the lake shore.  Lake Forsyth is on the south side of Banks Peninsula covering the floor of the Little River valley with the outlet where the shingle beach of Kaitorete Spit touches Banks Peninsula.  Not so long ago it would have been a sound or inlet open to the sea but is now completely shut off by the shingle piled across the entrance.  There should be the usual suspects like Selliera radicans and Samolus repens and some less usual like sea holly, Eryngium vesiculosum.
