Seasonal diary

“Nature’s Corner” was a seasonal diary about the sanctuary’s flora and fauna, written and illustrated by volunteers.

Note that there are many micro-climates in the valley, lying as it does in a generally north and south line and its topography, being long, narrow, and deep. Often plants and trees in one part of the valley have begun to seed while the same species in other parts of the Sanctuary are flowering or coming into flower. Historically plants and flowers in the valley have tended to flower and fruit later than those in other parts of Wellington.

As we find time we’ll format these pages properly. Apologies for any mess in the meantime!
