    Member Update

    By Geoff Curry

    Our TPT AGM is booked for Saturday 9th September in The Pod at the Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens in Hobart starting at 10.00am. Further reminders and an Agenda will be distributed before the date.

    Please put the date into your diary and give some careful consideration to stepping up and taking on a role in running TPT. A number of the Committee Members have held their positions for several years and I have personally been a Committee Member since 2009 and Field Trip Leader since 2010. I feel its time I hand my role onto one of TPT's newer members. We are also looking for someone to take on the role of Secretary.

    The Committee has done a great job of putting together a comprehensive draft Field Trip Program that includes the continuation of our long term monitoring programs and some very interesting Field Trips to new sites that will cover a diverse range of threatened species, habitats and locations across the state.

    President’s Report

    By Geoff Curry

    2020 was a year of change for everybody, and TPT was faced with many challenges. My thanks go to the hard-working Committee who have been very busy in the background keeping TPT running and moving forward. Despite all the challenges in 2020, there have been some very exciting developments over the last 12 months that will dramatically improve the running of TPT.

    Early last year the Committee held a planning session to discuss the future direction of TPT and begin developing a Strategic Plan. We discussed the possibility of changing our model to enable us to take more ownership over the type of projects and partners we work with. It was decided to undertake a call for projects and field trips from a range of partner organisations for the 2020/2021 field season. This resulted in a diverse and exciting field trip program, with interest from DPIPWE, Forico, NRM South, Tasmanian Land Conservancy, Enviro-dynamics, and Glenorchy Council. You can read more about these trips in this newsletter.

    I am proud to bring you the 2019 edition of the TPT Newsletter. It showcases the achievements of the field trip program and celebrates all of the hard work put in by TPT over the last 12 months. Highlights of the season include finding record numbers of
    Caladenia saggicola at Milford, recording new locations of Pultenaea sericea, Prasophyllum apoxychilum, and Phyllangium distylis at Granite Point Conservation Area, and undertaking the first targeted surveys for the recently described Viola curtisiae on Mount Wellington.

    From the President

    By Inger Visby

    August 2018

    This newsletter covers field trips and other activities for the second half of the 2017-18 TPT field trip season. As in other years, it has been a wonderful mix of surveys, training, weeding and conservation work. The latter includes the Orchid Conservation Program at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, which TPT is very proud to support. This program is working hard on establishing a living collection of our threatened orchid flora, and Autumn 2018 saw the first Caladenia anthracina plants survive a summer - well done to Magali, Nigel and team!
