Event description

Description

The theme for the 2017 event is ‘Landscape Connections and Restoration’. This emphasises the connections through landscape and time, due to the legacy issues of previous catchment disturbances.

Winton Wetlands is developing a research knowledge hub to provide a regular forum for researchers to meet and share information, equipment, facilities, and resources, and to collaborate on research as well as an online knowledge portal to access previous forum results, previous science on the site and relevant information for wetland restoration researchers and managers. Another aim is to provide a forum for the regions’ managers to come together and identify shared research needs and interests.

We are very pleased to announce that we have one of the world's experts on wetlands restoration speaking at the Forum. Dr Patrick Grillas is from the Tour de Valat in France where he and team of scientists have been working on restoration of the Camargue system.

In addition, we have a stellar line up of keynote speakers, including Chris Norman, CEO of the GBCMA, Dr Jane Roberts (vegetation scientist), Ms Beth Mellick, Wettenhall Foundation, Dr Kimberley James (Deakin University), Dr Lisa Farnsworth, Winton Wetands, Dr Ricky Spencer (University of Western Sydney ) and Dr Kay Morris (Arthur Rylah Insitute) .

We also have a special session on Ramsar Wetlands (with Gavin Prentice - Glenelg Hopkins CMA, Sean Phillipson - East Gippsland CMA, and Prof Max Finlayson - Charles Sturt University presention) as well as a field tour of restoration sites of the wider catchment and Winton Wetlands.

This is special opportunity to hear from a unique selection of speakers, as well as a tour of the catchment, restoration locations and art installations throughout the wetlands site.
