Study Groups of the APS Victoria

Study Groups … details and contacts

Study groups cater for members interested in a specific topic. Because they operate Australia-wide across all states and territories, they come under the umbrella of our national body ANPSA, the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia), and a national co-ordinator. Members are linked by correspondence and newsletters.

A summary of Study Group activities is a regular feature in “Growing Australian”, our quarterly magazine for members.

Study Group Liaison Officer

APS Victoria has a liason officer who works to foster close working relationships between our society and the leaders of the Study Groups, particularly those based in Victoria.
