Finding the plants that Beckler collected on the Burke and Wills Expedition is not always easy!
We are always grateful to our friends who have expert knowledge of plants in the area.
Our first foray was back along the Broken Hill Road.
It always amazes us how so many little plants grow in what looks like a boring salt bush habitat.
You just need to get out of the car and have a potter around.
So we collect (with permission and according to herbarium guidelines)
plants that we think are on Beckler's list. Then it is back to the hall to make final identifications.
