Earthlore's wildlife: There are Tui, Bellbird and Kereru living at Earthlore all year round. If you visit on a sunny day, you may also see Red and Yellow Admiral butterfly, Copper Butterfly and if you are really lucky, maybe even a Tussock Ringlet butterfly or two.
What people are saying about Earthlore
Really fun and informative. The wonderful garden and superb bird life are a bonus
Had a wonderful time with four children aged 9-12 visiting Earthlore this January. There was plenty for the children to do and we all found the insect displays and habitats very interesting. Highly recommended for a family afternoon out. Also would be a wonderful place for a group of adults who are interested in conservation or gardening to visit.
The variety of insects and the knowledge the owners have as to how they fit into the eco-system is truly inspiring.
