Conservation in Action Welcome Drinks
The Conservation in Action Welcome Drinks event is being held on the evening of Tuesday 15 May at The Oxford Hotel, Bathurst from 5 to 7pm. This will be a great opportunity to network with other conservation industry professionals prior to the beginning of the conference on Wednesday 16 May. Finger food and beverages as well as entertainment will be all be supplied.
Attendance at the Welcome Drinks event is included in full conference packages or available to be purchased separately. Pricing is only $40 as an early bird rate before Sunday 15 April, or $45 after this date. See link below for further registration details.
The Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities is the major sponsor for the conference Welcome Drinks. We are excited to announce that as part of this event the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities will be launching a new case study on the innovative Orange City Council Stormwater Harvesting Scheme.
This scheme was the first large scale example of stormwater treatment for indirect potable (drinking water) reuse in NSW, if not Australia. Large wetlands were constructed as part of the solution which not only provide an environmentally friendly, municipal water treatment solution, but also provide habitat for a range of native flora and fauna. This is a truly great example of a project that meets the conference theme of 'Research to Reality'.
B Town BBQ - upstairs at The Oxford hotel, corner of William and Piper Streets, Bathurst is the venue for our conference Welcome Drinks event. A food and beverage package has been organised including a variety of finger food and beverages for the duration of the event. Please contact the conference organisers if you are planning to attend and have any dietary requirements.
Please note that the B Town BBQ venue is not open for meals following the conclusion of this event.
