8 May (Fri): Workshop for Nature Guides - Pioneer Plants

Last week to sign up for this workshop!

Come learn more about the 'Treasures of our "Wastelands": Pioneer Plants Workshop' by Bian Tan. November of the Leafmonkey Workshop is organising the event.
In our shore explorations, I often come across 'wastelands' carpeted with wildflowers and other marvellous plants. I'm looking forward to learning more from Bian about them!

This workshop is an introduction to pioneer plants and the basic principles of succession ecology. Learn about some common species, and how our “wastelands” are actually important pioneering plant species.

About the speaker
