Grass icon Get Involved: Excursions, Workshops and Forums


Field trips are a great way to meet other members, improve your identification skills, learn collection processes, familiarise yourself with grassy ecosystems and have a little time to socialise as well.


The best way to improve your grass identification skills is to attend a workshop. ID workshops are generally scheduled for spring, and are held at the Urrbrae Wetlands. These courses are presented by a grass expert, and they are advertised through the group’s newsletter.


Issues of topical interest are dealt with by a panel of experts in full or half day presentations. Members are advised through the newsletter and by direct mail.

Members who have provided the Secretary with their email addresses will also be advised by email of coming events.

In March 2012, the Native Grass Resources Group provided financial and technical support for a Grassy Woodlands Restoration Forum that was hosted by the City of Salisbury and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Local and interstate speakers shared their hands-on experience of restoring grassy habitats.

      Hi Alison,

      We are pleased to learn of your interest in field trips, work shops and the like.

      In recent years our focus has been on supporting significant state-based workshops and forums that do not fit within an annual calendar.

      We will endeavour to advise of any forthcoming activities to facilitate the participation of our readers.

      Please stay tuned.
