Would you like to better develop your techniques in identifying native plants as well as exotic weeds? Creating your own herbarium can be a great way to become familiar with the plants which are in your local area.

Murray LLS has developed Plantbank, a herbarium kit, to assist community members such as Landcare groups, schools and individual landholders to identify local native plants and keep records and samples.

The Plantbank kit provides simple techniques in creating your very own herbarium for your bush site or even in your own backyard.

Each kit contains:

  • Folder with information on how to make your own herbarium & resource guide
  • Collecting bags
  • Hand lens
  • Field notebook
  • Field press
  • Specimen information sheets
  • Specimen mounting equipment
