History: This branch was formed in June 1983, primarily to conserve and protect the endangered N.T. palm, Ptychosperma bleeseri, which was located in only 8 small rainforest areas near Darwin.
 
Meetings: The NTPACS meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30pm in the John England Building of Berrimah Farm (N.T. Dept. of Primary Industries and Fisheries). We usually have a field trip on the 3rd or 4th Sunday of the month.
 
Publication: The Magazine of the NTPACS is published 3 to 4 times per year and is sent to all members of the branch as well as to other groups that reciprocate with their publications.

Fred's Pass Reserve Palm and Cycad Garden

Resource Garden around Bldg. 42 (Science Bldg.)
