The ANPC (Australian Network for Plant Conservation) will be running a two day workshop on plant identification for grassy ecosystems at the ANBG on the 13th and 14th March. Registration for this workshop closes on 6th March. The cost to register is $225. Full details, including registration procedures, can be found on the ANPC website .  When enrolling, you should indicate that you are a member of the Friends of the ANBG,

This two day workshop will introduce participants to grassy ecosystems, their diversity, ecology and provide the skills and information required to positively identify a range of common grassland plants.

We will use some of the most commonly encountered plant groups, including grasses, eucalypts and daisies, 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.
