Post-Conference Tour: Hortobágy Puszta

07.30-19.00, Thursday, 12 October 2017
This tour is optional, not included in the registration fee.

Discover the unique flora and fauna of the Hortobágy Puszta during this full day field trip.
Leaving Budapest early in the morning by bus allows us to spend the whole morning wandering on the Puszta, examining some botanical highlights, e.g. Tripolium pannonicum ssp. pannonicum, Limonium gmellinii, Salicornia spp., etc. Besides that, you’ll have a chance for bird-watching, meeting special Hungarian breeds of domestic animals e.g the Hungarian grey cattle, and free-range herd of Przewalsi horses in the Hortobágy National Park.
After a traditional lunch, we continue our trip to the centre of the region, historical city of Debrecen. We will visit a relatively young yet excellent botanical garden which belongs to a secondary school, called Diószegi Sámuel BG, where you can admire the richest collection of hardy bamboos in Hungary and other rare non-indigenous dendrotaxa. After this day full of adventures and experiences, we’re heading back to Budapest in the afternoon, estimated arrival at 19.00.
