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.
The 2017 forum will offer a unique selection of speakers, as well as a tour of the catchment, restoration locations and art installations throughout the wetlands site.
