The true nature of indigenous plants…

calostemma… was a very successful seminar held at the library just last Saturday, run by local conservationist Jeff Reid. Jeff drew upon his wealth of experience with native flora to speak for a couple of  hours about the vegetation that is indigenous to Tea Tree Gully and why we need to conserve it.

hopevalley-2Jeff directs a native conservation scheme at the Hope Valley Reservoir, and is the co-ordinator of the ‘Conservation of our Threatened Species‘ group.

In June Jeff is returning to talk about ‘Garden Escapees’, how regular garden plants can become noxious weeds when they escape from your yard!
