Botanist, Paul McPherson, assisted by Seedbank Coordinator, Karen Walker, will provide a practical introduction to the identification of local native plants, with an emphasis on recognising the major plant families in the field. We will look at the various tools and resources available to identify plants, including online resources and the use of botanical keys. Plant samples, printed summary sheets and hand lenses will be provided to use at the workshop.
