Pacific Horticulture Society has added a special naturalist tour to New Zealand November 15-30, 2018 in association with AAAS and Sigma Xi through Betchart Expeditions. From kiwis to kakas, temperate rainforests to glacial valleys, New Zealand possesses some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, with splendid botanic gardens and national parks. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the wonders of both North Island and South Island with experienced tour leader Lloyd Elser, who writes and illustrates popular scientific articles on New Zealand topics.
Also in November, join us on a tour of the gardens, wine, forests and glaciers of Chile from November 1-12, 2018. Discover native and endemic flora as we explore botanical gardens, national parks, and private reserves spanning a variety of climates and vegetation zones. From the culture and fine dining of Santiago, Chile’s metropolitan capital, to the country’s stunning floral landscapes and awe-inspiring Torres del Paine National Park in remote, beautiful Patagonia, you’ll be immersed in the natural beauty of this South American gem. This tour will be escorted by PHS board member Bob Hyland.
