ANPC has a National Office in Canberra. The office is staffed by two part-time employees, sometimes assisted by volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the National Office.
The ANPC's activities are overseen by a committee which represents a range of stakeholders in plant conservation. Many members actively contribute to projects.
The ANPC hasn't always been the way it is now. A couple of articles are reproduced here to record how things were. More can be gleaned from old issues of Danthonia and Australasian Plant Conservation, the ANPC journal.
