Orchids with David Jones (workshop)

Atlas Naturalists Workshop

Saturday, 21st September

2pm - 5pm

How much do you know about native orchids? Would you recognise a Greenhood or know where to look for a Flying Duck? Did you know that there are about 140 distinct species in our region? And have you ever wondered what’s involved in accurate species identification?

David Jones has generously offered to share his knowledge of orchids through a special presentation at this Atlas Naturalists workshop. You can even bring along your own orchid photos for identification and discussion.

Please register to help us with our planning for this event.

David Jones is well known for his research into orchid diversity and has contributed to many projects and publications. His expertise includes species identification, pollination and propagation. He has been directly involved in the recognition and identification of many new species of Australian orchids. We are very fortunate to have David and Barbara Jones as active members of the Atlas of Life community.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this special workshop, so feel free to share this information with interested friends.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact Paul Whitington (Atlas Naturalists coordinator) on 0459 315132 or Kerri-Lee Harris 0467 966553
