Discovering the Wollemi Pine with Liz Benson
As Education Officer with the Royal Botanic Gardens and an accomplished speaker, Liz will trace the discovery of the Wollomi Pine and discuss current and fossil relatives. She will also share the causes of the forest types that have arisen in Australia in the past and present.
Along with the afternoon talk, in the morning, there will be two guided walks through the Warriewood Wetland,a vital area of biodiversity on the Northern Beaches...more.
Come with us on a journey to explore the flora of thousands of years ago to the world of the future! Combining guest speakers, seminars, workshops and field trips, this promises to be an exciting 5.5 days, from Sunday 12 Sept to Friday 17 September 2021, right when the plants are blooming (rain permitting)!
Along with the conference itself, we will be hosting tours pre- and post-conference, to a range of beautiful and iconic places around NSW such as the south coast, Blue Mountains, Lord Howe Island, Warrumbungles and Sydney.
