WELCOME TO THE ANPC
THE NATIONAL NETWORK THAT LINKS PEOPLE, RESEARCH AND ACTION IN PLANT CONSERVATION
The importance of provenance is all about knowledge - knowing where plant seed came from, the site and situation it grew in, and the type and form of the plants. This is all important to the usefulness and value of the seed. (T. Hogbin)
Hear presentations by key plant geneticists and expert native seed practitioners regarding the current best understanding of provenance issues for planning and implementing ecological restoration. The workshops, funded by the NSW Environmental Trust, are being organised by the ANPC in conjunction with NSW Local Land Services, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney and CSIRO.

The ANPC recently launched this new and improved ANPC website. A big thank you to everyone who has donated to the ANPC Public Fund over the last eighteen months, and especially Natural Area Consulting Management Services, as these donations have covered the costs of establishing and designing the website. Donations are now going towards setting up the shopping cart so we can improve our service and go 'on-line' for memberships, publications and workshop registrations.
The end of financial year is the perfect time to donate to the causes you care about. To help us further develop the website this year, please complete this donation form and email it back to us. Donations of $2 or more to the ANPC are tax-deductible. We also have plans to expand the website this year to increase the community's knowledge, awareness and appreciation of native plants, especially threatened plant species and endangered ecological communities. The website will also be gradually updated and further developed to provide a comprehensive resource for all those working in plant conservation.
The ANPC recently assisted with a workshop held by the Hunter and Central Coast Regional Environmental Management Strategy (HCCREMS) team on the management and conservation of this federally listed critically endangered community. Hunter Valley Weeping Myall Woodland is a vegetation community which is in serious risk of extinction due to its now very limited distribution. Find out more here.
