Newsletter quote - 1968

“More workers and considerably greater funds are urgently needed to fill the many gaps in our basic knowledge of freshwater environments before civilisation with its multiplicity of polluting and destructive agencies overtakes them irreparably. It is to be hoped that liberal and enlightened attitudes will prevail”.

40 years on – what has changed?

slide14

Memorable moments

Mike Winterbourn –“My memories are not so erotic”

Public forum – ?

Ann Chapman – “Scandal”

–“…increased domination by non-university members

…more management oriented talks and less

academic ecology

… larger and more expensive conferences

… highlights were the field trips where people had

opportunity to talk informally”

slide15

Today…

Vibrant graduates

Healthy finances

slide16

Today…

  • Great linkages
  • Joint conferences
  • Visiting scientists
slide17

Newsletter quote - 1968

“It would however be very dangerous to feel smug at this early stage and we should withhold our congratulations for another two or three years until we are sure that the original enthusiasm has generated a self sustaining body with a continual inflow of members”.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Forty years a flowin’

by John Quinn

NZFS Society

Brings us together like tributaries

Into your lake our waters flow

As we share what we think we know

NZ Limnol Society

Started by our visionaries

Vida, Ann and Donald Scott

Max and Geoff we owe a lot

Chorus (all together)

Freshwater Society

Your waka has room for me

Flow river to the sea

Freshwater Society

slide19

 LimSoc’s always been the one

The conference where there’s science and fun

We debate as we oughta

So we learn about the water

Forty years on the waka grows

Like the Clutha this river flows

No-one’s sure what’s around the bend

To the paddles our strength we lend

Chorus (all together)

Freshwater Society

Your waka has room for me

Flow river to the sea

Freshwater Society

Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday dear Limsoc Happy birthday to you
