This conference was kindly sponsored by Premier Sponsors Hutt City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council and Gold Sponsor: Coastlands Plant Nursery

There was a free pre-conference course called DUNES101 on Tuesday 20 March. People learnt about dune processes, restoration and coastal plants from our expert trustees Jim Dahm and David Bergin. The DUNES101 day was kindly sponsored by the Department of Conservation.

A small select group went on an additional fieldtrip to the Wonderful Wairarapa after the main conference. They shared their knowledge and expertise with the locals and local experts from DOC and Greater Wellington Regional Council at each site.
