Get the Westgate Park app

Plants and fungi: a field guide – has gone live!

This IOS app will help people identify the plants they see, not just in Westgate Park but around Melbourne and regions of Victoria, together with fungi recorded in the Park in over the last decade.

The app includes the names, descriptions and photos of 293 indigenous plants and names and photos of 78 species of fungi. It also shows weed species which is useful for weeders!

We would love your feedback.

A big thank you to those who put the app together:

Lecki Ord and Lyn Allison for text, Lyn Allison for photos, Telmo Espinoza and Isabel Rojas for developing the app and Anne Gugger for project management
