Living Lake Symposium 2009
Over 100 people from all walks of life attended the Symposium which was held on Wednesday, 4 November 2009, at Lincoln University, Canterbury, NZ.
The Symposium focused on where the research and action points agreed to in 2007 have led, in relation to our understanding of the Lake. The latest research and information about the lake and its catchments was ably presented in easy to digest formats. There was time to ask the experts questions, debate issues and discuss options.
Organised and managed by the Waihora Ellesmere Trust, the Symposium was supported by: Department of Conservation, Environment Canterbury, Fish and Game, Lincoln University, NIWA and the Selwyn District Council.
Thanks to all the presenters, poet and field trip guides. Special thanks to the extended Chamberlain family for hosting the field trip BBQ on the evening of the 3rd.
Following the symposium, Professor Ken Hughey of Lincoln University compiled a summary of the key findings and conclusions.
