Book Project: Growing Native Plants on the North Coast of NSW

 First published in 2006, we are working on a Second Edition of this excellent resource for native plant enthusiasts and home gardeners.       

Conservation

In 2018, our group will be monitoring selected local threatened or endangered species (from the NSW Environment Department's Saving Our Species register) by working with local National Parks regeneration projects around Moonee Beach, just north of Coffs Harbour. Once we have gained some experience in the techniques and methodology for data collection, we can extend our efforts to other species in our area. Our initial focus will be on two local species: Sophora tomentosa and Zieria prostrata.
