Barrett Lagoon

On Tuesday we went to Barrett Lagoon. Our instructor was called Mr Archer.

First he showed us a Kawakawa tree. He told us about how Maori used to use its leaves to numb their teeth when they had a toothache. Some of us tried it, I did and it was disgusting.

After that he took us through a bush walk, then he showed us a tui in a Kauri tree. Finally we arrived at the lagoon where there were lots of ducks and black swans. Sadly, there was a duck with a dart in it. Mrs Zieltjes called the SPCA to come and save the poor little duck, but they couldn’t catch it. He also showed us a lot of plants.
