2021 Wilding Pines Conference

Conference Save the Date - 3-5 November in Blenheim

2021 Wilding Pines Conference: 3-5 November in Blenheim

The NZ Wilding Conifer Group would like to invite you to our annual Wilding Pines Conference on 3-5 November in Blenheim this year. 

This conference is the premier wilding pine event of the year and is an excellent opportunity to keep up to date with the latest happenings in the wilding pine space as well as discuss solutions for current challenges. 

The theme of this year’s conference is "Collective action for long-term gain". We'd like to acknowledge the hard work and collaboration involved in wilding control, while also continuing to think about what next after control efforts and how we can lock in the gains we've made.

More details about conference registration will be coming soon.

Additionally, the Conference Organising Committee is thinking through our Covid contingency plan. We will only hold this event in person if it is safe to do so.

Call for presentations

The Conference Organising Committee is also now seeking presentation suggestions for this conference. 

To submit a presentation suggestion for consideration, please email a description of a maximum of 250 words of what you'd like to talk about to Rowan Sprague at rowan@nzwildingconifergroup.org. When you submit your abstract, please specify whether you’d like to give a 20 minute or a 5 minute presentation.

Please submit your presentation offer by Friday 10 September at 5pm, and please forward this request to anyone who you think would be interested in presenting a talk. 

We will contact regional representatives and community groups separately about giving a talk in our Regional and Community Updates conference session.

We look forward to your response!
