Event description
Restoration Day is the annual conference for community groups involved in environmental restoration projects in the Wellington Region

About this event

Join other members of the restoration community for Restoration Day 2021!

This annual event offers the chance to network with other like-minded people involved in restoration projects around the region, and learn more about how your project can support our precious native taonga.

Restoration Day 2021 will be hosted at Samuel Marsden Collegiate School, Karori. The theme this year is Birds, Bugs and Lizards.

Programme highlights include a keynote speech from Capital Kiwi’s Paul Stanley-Ward, ‘lightning round’ talks from eight community experts, and engaging workshops and field trips where you can learn something new.

Registration

Please look at the event programme before registering, as this will help you to choose which field trip and workshops to attend.

Although we would love to see you all at Restoration Day, there are so many wonderful groups, and a limited capacity for this event. For this reason, we ask that only three people or less from each group come along.

If someone from your group is presenting or providing support to organisers, they will be considered separate to the group and you can therefore have three additional attendees. To encourage diversity, if you have a first-timer or person under 25, you are welcome to bring them along as an extra person.

Registrations close Friday 4 June 2021
