Connecting Country is presenting half day Eucalypt Identification Workshops in four locations across the Mount Alexander region.
Each workshop aims to provide participants with the skills needed to identify some of the common eucalypt species to be found in the region. They will include a classroom-based discussion on the biology of our local eucalypts, with a special emphasis on our rare and endangered species and a ‘walk and talk’ session to identify some local eucalypts in their natural habitat.
Participants will be provided with an identification workbook and also a copy of Leon Costermans’ ‘Trees of Victoria and Adjoining Areas 6th Edition Field Guide’.
Presenter: Greg Guy, botanist and lecturer from Bendigo Regional Institute of TAFE
