About this Event

North-east Botany Course 5 November 2020

What is it?

FPA will be holding a regional one-day course on Tasmania’s flora. This course is designed for forestry practitioners, in particular Forest Practices Officers and forest planners involved in preparing forest practices plans who need to be able to identify and manage flora values. The course will cover:

• identifying local eucalypts, trees and shrubs –particularly species that are used for vegetation community identification using the Forest botany manual

• identifying sites of significance that are likely to support priority flora species or priority vegetation communities

• identifying weeds and disease.

The course fee includes provision of both TreeFlip and EucaFlip.

Where is it?

This field day will be held at various locations around Lilydale, Tasmania.

When is it?

North-east 5 November 2020

On the day

The field day will begin at 9am and finish around 4pm. Course locations and meeting points will be provided to participants prior to the course.

Participants will need to have access to a vehicle for the course as we aim to visit multiple field sites each day covering a range of vegetation communities and species. Car-pooling is highly encouraged due to limited parking at field sites. Car-pooling can also be arranged at the starting point of the day as this site has been selected due to available parking. There will also be a few places available in FPA vehicles.

The entire day will be conducted in the field (in the unpredictable Tassie weather), so please ensure you have sturdy footwear, wet weather clothing, sunscreen and a helmet. FPA will have limited spare equipment available.

We will be in touch with you closer to the date to determine exact sites and locations.

Course fee

Cost (inc GST): Forest practices system workers $159

Non-forest practices system workers $220

This fee will cover the course materials, delivery by FPA staff and Consultant Specialists, morning tea and afternoon tea, and lunch.

Please note the FPA has a no refunds policy on course tickets.
