ANPC WORKSHOP on plant identification for flora of the Wimmera, Horsham Victoria 30th – 31st October 2013
ANPC will be hosting a workshop on plant identification for flora of the Wimmera in partnership with Wimmera CMA and Wimmera Landcare 30th – 31st October 2013 in Horsham.
This two day workshop will introduce participants to the plant communities and threatened flora of the Wimmera region and provide the skills and information required to positively identify a range of common plants.
We 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 the experts through the identification services of the major herbaria.
Along the way we will de‑mystify identification ‘keys’, and introduce you to useful field characters to look for.
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, practicals and field‑based activities.
