The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan

Little is known about the impact of climate change on Australia's plants and animals. The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan, NSW hosts remnants of native Cumberland Plain Woodland vegetation.  The new ClimateWatch trail has been launched on 29 November 2013 to engage the public in the long-term monitoring of biodiversity found in the Garden.  Mt. Annan is also host to the new PlantBank facility which houses the Royal Botanic Gardens Domain & Trust seeds and specialises in scientific research and conservation of native vegetation.
