Introduction


Wellington Botanical Society, established in 1939, has membership of approximately 280 amateur and professional botanists.   Our activities include research, field work, publication, advocacy, and the provision of botanical expertise.   We support botanical research and endeavour through grants and advice to students.

We advocate the conservation and protection of NZ native plants.

We aim to encourage the study of botany, particularly the NZ flora, foster an interest in NZ native plants, especially in the field, encourage the cultivation of native plants and advocate for the protection, under protected area statutes, of lands and waters in their natural state.

Visitors are welcome to Meetings and Field Trips.
