Native vs Weed look-a-likes

Native Plant vs. Weed Look-a-like workshop

Would you like to further develop your skills in identifying and recognising native plants from weed look-a-likes?

This workshop will involve a guided walk around the Mt Kembla Ring Track near Wollongong.

Local botanist and Landcare Illawarra project officer Richard Scarborough will guide participants along the track looking at a range of native plants which are often easily mistaken for weeds they look like. Richard will give you some simple tips on how to tell them apart and show you a range of resources which can help you to avoid making mistakes in restoration activities.

When: Saturday the 24th of March 10am – 1pm

Where: Mt Kembla Ring Track. Meeting point details supplied on registration.

Cost: Free

Grade: Moderate (some steep areas)

What to bring: Bring your own snacks, water, hat, sunscreen, wear sturdy shoes, long sleeves and long pants – there are leeches and mosquitoes.

RSVP: Please RSVP by Friday the 23rd to secure your place on the walk, to Megan Rowlatt or phone 4229 7526.
