A community science open day on Sunday November 20th is a special feature of this year’s Australasian Ecological Restoration Conference held in Hamilton (19-23 November).
Community environmental groups, students, educators, not-for-profits, as well as members of the wider community either already engaged in, or wishing to learn more about cutting-edge restoration science are encouraged to participate. Along with a wide range of presentations by professional ecologists, there will be opportunities to present your own project(s) via an informal soap box session or as a regular 12min conference talk. Workshops as well as a panel session to maximise knowledge sharing and networking opportunities are also scheduled, and further ideas for workshops are welcomed. The cost for the day is only $25NZD (criteria apply and numbers are limited). Book now – it sounds like an opportunity not to be missed for those interested in engaging students in authentic science learning.
