My favourite activity is ecological restoration, identifying and removing exotic plants from small areas of native forest reserves in North Shore Auckland. I also spent a year or so identifying species and weeding a freshwater wetland area / low-energy stream / sedimentation pond in Browns Bay. No formal training but did some filing in the Auckland Museum Botany Dept as a volunteer... a great experience. I am enjoying the Places and Projects functions to record the plant communities of all the open spaces in my neighbourhood. Over the years I have appreciated identifications of any unfamiliar invertebrate I have the opportunity to study close-up, and, since the digital camera, photograph. I will try to return the favour by adding to the database by photographing any invertebrate when I can.
