Wirrina Cove, Jun 26th and 11 other dates
In partnership with the District Council of Yankalilla we will be creating habitat to provide a critical food and nesting stepping stone at Wirrina Cove on the Fleurieu Peninsula for the endangered Black Glossy Cockatoo. Much of this habitat was lost due to clearing of Woodland on the Fleurieu Peninsula in the 1900's, which has restricted the Glossy Black Cockatoo to Kangaroo Island.
This community focused project will enhance fragmented habitat by planting 25,000 trees such as Drooping Sheoak Low Woodland and associated canopy and understorey species such as SA Blue Gum and Pink Gum. This project will expand viable foraging and nesting sites 17kms north from the small pockets of vegetation that currently exist; which will allow the Glossy Black Cockatoo to cross back to the mainland and establish populations on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
MAY: Most of the project days will involve preparing the site for planting.
JUNE: Planting will begin!
Onkaparinga Hills, Jun 26th and 2 other dates
Join us in this project funded by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges to protect natural habitat by removing invasive Boneseed, a woody-weed that can quickly take over native vegetation if not carefully managed. You will enjoy the native flora and fauna of the Onkaparinga Hills while learning some plant identification skills and weed control methods, including hand-pulling and cut & swab, depending on the size of the plant.
Boneseed is listed as a 'Weed of National Significance' and is often regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia because of its invasiveness, potential for spread, and its economic and environmental impacts. Join this project and help us tackle this aggressive invader!
Thompson Beach, Jun 27th and 2 other dates
Funded by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges and supported by Adelaide Plains Council we will be undertaking revegetation projects across numerous locations within the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary.
The Bird Sanctuary stretches for over 60km of coastline which makes it one of Adelaide’s longest conservation sites. The sanctuary sits on the East Asian–Australasian Flyway and is a crucial migratory route and feeding site for over 5 million birds each year. This project will directly benefit species such as the endangered Far Eastern Curlew, Red-necked Stint, Red Knot and Ruddy Turnstone.
Projects dates and locations are as follow:
Thompson Beach – 27 June
Port Prime – 28 and 29 June
Join us at this globally important site, in association with local community groups, to plant native species and help revegetate this spectacular part of the world, to increase biodiversity and provide habitat for local ecological communities.

These days are funded by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges and Yankalilla Council
Adelaide , Jun 30th and 2 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.
In May and June we will be undertaking work on creating a trail through this wonderful area.
Come and join our team of volunteers. It's a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and contribute to improving our environment.
Barossa, Jul 4th and 1 other date
Join us on this two day project collecting tree guards which will be recycled for some of our future planting days.
In June 2016, 10,000 native seedlings were planted as part of the two-day Para Woodlands planting event. About 100 volunteers participated, assisted by a Green Army team that spent six months working at Para Woodlands.
The aim for this reserve is to restore the natural ecosystem to conserve wildlife. The property consists of existing remnant vegetation, including River Red Gum, Peppermint Box, SA Blue Gum, native grasses and herbs. The Para Woodlands Restoration Project is mainly focusing on restoring a functioning grassy ecosystem to the site. It includes maintaining remnant vegetation, revegetation of local native species and eradication of weedy species.
By restoring Para Woodlands it is hoped that threatened woodland bird species of the Mount Lofty Ranges will re-establish in this area.
Cudlee Creek, July 10th
Join us for this work in conjunction with Mid Torrens Catchment Group Inc. where we will be planting Paddock Trees, replacing those lost to clearance and fire in the days of early settlement. This will improve local habitat, by offering shelter and stepping stones for native fauna, allowing nature to flourish in conjunction with farming.
Paddock trees are typically Red and SA Blue Gums and provide a variety of benefits to animals. They provide a vital food source for insects therefore, attract birds and mammals. They also provide nesting sites for birds, bats and possums by way of hollows in trunks and branches. From a farming perspective they are important in the shade that they provide to livestock.
Join us in June to help plant paddock trees and see how planting these trees can support biodiversity, enhance the landscape, and improve the quality of water, air and soil.
Stonyfell, July 10th
The Michael Perry Botanic Reserve is a quiet reserve following Second Creek through Stonyfell and Burnside. The reserve connects with several other reserves further downstream.
Join us for a day planting at this wonderful site providing habitat for local wildlife. We will also be extending one of the trails within the reserve, which will provide a wonderful insight into the efforts that are required for the establishment and maintenance of walking trails.
We are pleased that this day is sponsored and supported by BORAL Connected Communities 2018.
Torrens Island, Jul 13th and 7 other dates
Marine debris is becoming a massive environmental issue worldwide, with it estimated that approximately 6.4 million tons of litter is ending up in the world's oceans every year. This is a serious problem as marine debris has a wide variety of negative impacts for humans, wildlife and sensitive aquatic habitats, including the highly publicised injury and fatality to marine life through entanglement or ingestion.
Thanks to AGL we will focus on removing marine debris from Torrens Island to protect the local marine environment. The collected rubbish will also be quantified to obtain data regarding type and potential origin of the debris.
Join us to help combat this important global issue!
Noarlunga Downs, Jul 17th and 1 other date
Conservation Volunteers will be assisting at Onkaparinga River Recreation Park with weed removal and habitat restoration. After the flooding in October 2016, large amounts of prickly pear were washed down the river and onto the banks. The team will be focusing on removing these broken prickly pear pieces from the site.
JULY 17th and 18th: We are pleased to announce that these two days are supported and sponsored by BORAL Connected Communities 2018
Stonyfell, July 23rd
We have been assisting Burnside Council with managing their biodiversity for many years. This beautiful biodiversity hotspot in the Adelaide Hills is a popular area for hikers and mountain bike riders, with a series of trails being surrounded by native vegetation that unfortunately has been invaded by various weeds including garden escapees.
Volunteers will be using various techniques to remove invasive plants that will increase space for the native vegetation to flourish and therefore provide habitat for local wildlife. We will also be extending one of the trails within the reserve, which will provide a wonderful insight into the efforts that are required for the establishment and maintenance of walking trails.
