Nick Courtens Series | Exploring the South Island of New Zealand: Botany in Te Waka a Maui

Exploring the South Island of New Zealand

Hear a lecture which will highlight the journey of an amateur botanist throughout much of the South Island of New Zealand. From subalpine scree to temperate rainforest, explore the fascinating plant evolution and human influence on one of the most biodiverse archipelagos in the world. Join Rowan Nygard, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens’ intern and graduate of Longwood Gardens, in the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens Education Center.

The Nick Courtens Series continues his legacy of inspiring the community about the environment. Sharing his knowledge with the community was part of the vibrant fabric of late Curator, Nick Courtens. This event is underwritten by the Nick Courtens Fund. If you’d like to contribute to the fund, you can make a donation online here.
