An integral part of each year’s program is the forum which offers a series of engaging and insightful presentations from guest speakers highlighting the theme for the year. Previous forums have focused on grasslands, volcanoes, return to country, migration – of people, plants and animals, biodiversity of indigenous grasslands, climate, energy and the future.
In 2020 we present a forum on our theme ‘The Lake as Home’.
