Learn about the common native plants belonging to each family, basic flower parts, leaf parts, features that are characteristic of each family and how to quickly identify plants in the bush.

This year's series runs on the first Saturday of the month, now commencing on 7 May and running through to November.

Taught by Diane Warman, botanist and ecologist, and member of the group. Diane is a former recipient of APS North Shore’s Val Williams Scholarship.

Diane's bio can be found here.

Each workshop covers discrete information i.e. one or more plant families each month.

Get a grounding of basic botany in a typical patch of Hawkesbury sandstone bushland. Diane will teach the group about some of the area's plant families, such as the celery family Apiaceae, the daisy family Asteraceae, Native Fuchsias Epacridaceae, Banksias Proteaceae and Boronias Rutaceae.

The series is limited to members of APS Central Coast. Each month's location will be published in Epacris Epistle.

Bookings essential. Email Barbara at
