Tidy Kiwis in the Forest - 21st Jun 2018

Today was a lovely calm morning for our forest visit to Hamilton Park.  A little wet underfoot getting across the grassed field to the trees, but not a worry to us hardy Southlanders.  Peter led us to a leafy area by the track where we roped off some space to explore.  

Investigating our area we found interesting leaves, twigs with buds for new leaves, moss and lichen.  We discovered that moss and lichen looked the same but felt very different, moss being soft and lichen being hard.

Taking a rest on the tarpaulin the tamariki had a fruit break.  Peter, very cleverly, had apple and banana ready to pass out on skewers so we didn't need to touch our fruit. 
Before leaving we discovered some plastic rubbish and being tidy kiwis we picked it up and took it away with us. 
Thank you to Taylor who was our rubbish helper.

We are all looking forward to our next visit and hope to hear more birds in the trees and see how the forest changes with the seasons.
