Bronwen Jean Keighery

Trained as a botanist, zoologist and teacher Bronwen has written widely on the state’s wildflowers. This work includes 100s of technical reports on plants in bushland as well as a number of ‘get to know and how to’ packages and books for children through to adults. Our Wild Plants, a package for primary schools was distributed to all primary schools in WA. The most recent project is an app for the Wildflowers of WA.

As lead botanist for the Environmental Protection Authority for 15 years Bronwen was a key participant in developing native vegetation as a key factor in environmental impact assessment. In this same role Bronwen was critical to the development of the most recent conservation plan for Perth’s Swan Coastal Plain. Bronwen is a world expert in native plant research and conservation of the Swan Coastal Plain’s native vegetation.

A member of the Wildflower Society of WA for more than 35 years her focus has been on educational and conservation projects including a continuing 32 year program on Bushland Plant Survey.

Bronwen stresses that once you know the names of some wildflowers you will be among friends whenever you visit WA’s wild places.
