The AHNRC maintains a small specialised reference library and range of DVDs, which members can access. We also have a herbarium of local plant species.
There is a wide range of free brochures and fact sheets also available covering topics of interest to the local community.
The Norton Summit region contains a variety of native plant species, but these plants are almost impossible to find at local garden centres.
