Queenstown Lakes District restoration pathways workshops
A huge amount of ecological restoration mahi is planned and underway in the Queenstown Lakes District (QLD) region. The New Zealand Plant Conservation Network (NZPCN) is excited to be working alongside the QLD Council to extend the reach of our recent conference in Tāhuna – Queenstown (December 2022) which focused on Hauropi whakahou ki Aotearoa – Restoration Ecology in New Zealand. We want to provide a mechanism to share local learnings, define and facilitate success. We are inviting all conference participants and restoration practitioners who work in the Queenstown Lakes District to contribute stories about their restoration experiences.
Initially two workshop timeslots were scheduled for 15 May, but registration levels were very low for the evening session so this was cancelled. To make the afternoon session easier to attend, we have extended it from 1 PM to 5.30 PM, folks can stay as long as they wish, and feel free to turn up whenever you are available. If there is a need to go beyond 5.30 PM, we will stay on longer.
We will collate and review these stories with the broader goal of identifying successful pathways that could guide future restoration work in the region. A synthesis document from the workshops will be freely available to anyone via the NZPCN website.
Key details: 15th May 2023, the Anthenaeum Hall (33 Buckingham Street, Arrowtown). Session 1 (1-5:30 PM)
You can download a template here to help share your restoration stories and experiences with us.
