Adelaide , Nov 18th and 20 other dates
Patawalonga Creek was once a diverse watercourse running through the Adelaide plains which has now been contained in many places through the suburbs in concrete canals. There is, however, one part that you can still see some of the original Adelaide Plains creekside where now remains a significant remnant of the Swamp Paperbark plant community.
This part of the Patawalonga Creek runs through the grounds of Adelaide Airport and with their support Conservation Volunteers and Friends of Patawalonga Creek have been restoring the creek through seed collecting, native vegetation planting, weed control and surveys. This last little stretch of creek is an important refuge for aquatic life including tortoises, frog and waterbirds. Its’ Melaleuca trees are state heritage listed and there is also little blue bush that you won’t find in many places. The site has had fantastic changes over the years thanks to volunteers and it still needs your help to hold back the pressures of surrounding urbanisation.
Come and join our team of volunteers. It's a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and contribute to improving our environment.
PLEASE NOTE: It is also possible to meet on-site if that is easier for you, but please contact the office so we can confirm the exact meeting location and time.

It has suffered from invasion by weeds, dumping and recreational driving.
