A little bit about us
Our members are both professional and amateur naturalists who share a common interest in the natural world.
We encourage the study of all aspects of natural history and advocate the conservation of our natural heritage. Our journal, The Tasmanian Naturalist, is issued annually and our quarterly information Bulletin covers forthcoming activities.
The club was formed in 1904, and we are associated with other Field Naturalist Clubs throughout Tasmania and beyond.
Our monthly meetings usually include a guest speaker who presents an illustrated talk on a topic of their particular interest or expertise. Members also contribute and discuss their recent observations of nature. An excursion on the following weekend visits a site, usually in Southern Tasmania, and usually related to the topic of the presentation.
