Where: Bournda Environmental Education Centre
Botanist, Paul McPherson and Seedbank Coordinator, Karen Walker will use some of the most commonly encountered plant groups to introduce you to the best identification resources (printed, on‑line, and interactive). You will also learn how to access experts through the identification services of the major herbaria. Along the way they will de‑mystify identification ‘keys’.
The workshop is targeted at the beginner level, but will also provide a good opportunity for those more experienced in plant identification to refresh their skills.
Learning will be through a combination of theory presentations and practical activities using hand held lenses and microscopes.
Morning tea and lunch provided. For further information and bookings, contact Ali Rodway on 0417 246 896 or firstname.lastname@example.org
