Wildings Webinars

The Wildings Webinar series is led by the Wilding Pine Network.

This webinar series features applied research and discussions about wilding pines. We have about one webinar every other month, and each webinar lasts roughly 30 minutes (20 minute presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion). These webinars are organised by the Wilding Pine Network, and the webinars are hosted by Manaaki Whenua through the GoToWebinar platform.

We are planning to do more webinars so watch this space but please enjoy those that are listed below.
