The purpose of these awards is to acknowledge outstanding contributions to native plant conservation. Initially these awards were given out annually at our AGM or biennial conference, but since 2020 the NZPNCN committee decided to run online AGMs and so the awards are given out biennially at our conferences.
Award categories are:
- Plant Nursery
- Young Plant Conservationist of the Year (under 18 years)
The nomination form is available below:
You can make multiple nominations under different categories. Anyone is eligible to make nominations, not just Network members. The awards will be presented at the 2022 NZPCN Conference in Queenstown in March 2022. Winners will be informed in advance of the meeting. Nominations close on Friday 14 October 2022. Please send your nominations to our 2022 awards coordinator Sarah Beadel:
