Vercors & Verdon Gorge, SE France
July 11, 2015 - July 18, 2015
This meeting is now fully booked
We have Jean-Luc Destombes helping with the planning and hoping to come out in the field with us. Jean-Luc has surgery pending at the moment, but has already contributed substantially to the early stages of planning. He has worked for many years in Vercors and has a very good knowledge of the ferns. Jean-Luc’s website
The tour is almost full as there have been two earlier notifications but we often have people dropping out at this stage so there might be room for 3 more people. Please let Pat know if you are seriously interested and that you are prepared to join a waiting list. The way most people will travel is to fly to Grenoble and hire/share a car to travel to Vercors National Park. Some people will be travelling by road and meeting us there. We will stay at Vercors for 6 nights and see a variety of ferns. On the 7th day, we will spend the morning travelling to the Gorge of Verdon to see various Aspleniums including the celebrated Asplenium jahandiezii, which is not closely related to any Asplenium in Western Europe. After a one night stay at a hotel part way back, we will make an early start the following morning for an afternoon flight back from Grenoble.
