Event description

Description

A second workshop is now on due to popular demand!

Join renowed Eucalyptus ID expert Peter Mobbs for a masterclass on identification.

You'll cover key ecotype identification across the Lower Blue Mountains, Cumberland and Hawkesbury ecotypes, learn the secrets of plant idenification and differentiation, the intrinsic linkages between the floral and physical world including soil and climate. Our Saturday is filled with hands-on learning at Emu Plains Community Centre, followed by a progressive tour all-day Sunday to view and experience each ecotype across the Western Sydney, Hawkesbury and Lower Blue Mountains Regions.

About Peter Mobbs

Peter is a well-renowed expert on Sydney and Blue Mountains eucalyptus, and regarded by most - if not all - Sydney-based NRM professionals as the definative authority on eucalyptus and Greater Sydney flora. Peter has extensive teaching experience at TAFE Richmond, and won numerous awards for his dedication and passion for Bushcare in the Hawkesbury - spanning more than 25 years.

This is a two-day intensive masterclass across Saturday and Sunday. It'll be fully catered for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea - sandwiches, fruit, snacks as well as tea and coffee. Saturday will be spent at Emu Plains hall from 10:00 to 5pm, and then a full-day Sunday from 7:30am on progressively visiting, learning and comparing real-world ecotypes where you'll gain the real-world experience to recognise these stunning - and often threatened - ecosystems.

What you'll require

Pen, paper, sunglasses, sun protection and water bottles, and preferably your own keep cup for tea and coffee. We'll provide the rest - including your training resources and manual. You'll need your own transport; please let us know ASAP if you'd like to attend, so we can make carpooling arrangements.
