Events & Activities
We have a wide range of formal and informal activities involving large and small groups. This website has information about many of them. ANPS has a membership of over 200. It is affiliated with the Australian Native Plants Society Australia (ANPSA), and keeps in touch with its counterparts in the States through exchange newsletters and Journals, and through the ANPSA biennial Conference. Members also have the opportunity to participate in Australia-wide Study Groups that focus on particular genera or plant families, or on related horticutural matters or aspects.
