Highbury, Oct 25th and 8 other dates
Join our volunteer teams at this important urban biodiversity corridor to assist with habitat enhancement. We will be helping to protect re-established vegetation that was planted through the efforts of school groups, as well as maintaining the safety of the walking trails and removing invasive weeds. Come along and discover this special part of Adelaide that many people do not even know exists!
Mawson Lakes, Oct 26th and 9 other dates
Parafield Airport hosts the last known array of vernal pools within the Adelaide metro area. What are vernal pools? They are temporary pools of water that provide habitat for distinctive plants and animals. Discovered in 2001, they were assessed to be of high wetland value, with significant flora and uncommon aquatic fauna. Prior to their discovery, they were used for agricultural practices and recreational activities - farming, grazing and even a golf driving range!
CVA volunteers have been engaged to help restore this unique site by addressing issues such as weed management and reintroducing local plants.
This is a great opportunity to learn about this rare habitat in the heart of suburbia. Join us on the journey!
Adelaide , Oct 26th and 6 other dates
Join us to help care for a unique area in Adelaide! 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.

CVA have been assisting Burnside Council with managing their biodiversity for many years. A popular area for hikers and mountain bike riders, the series of trails are surrounded by native bush that has been invaded by various weeds including garden escapees.
Join us at this beautiful biodiversity hotspot to remove various invasive plants to increase space for the natives to flourish and provide habitat for the local wildlife, as well as to maintain and extend the tracks and trails within the reserves.
Stonyfell, November 1st
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.
Mypolonga, Nov 2nd and 3 other dates
Join us on 2 November and assist with the BioBlitz as part of the Paiwalla and Sunnyside Reserve Discovery Day. Help the team to record birds, frogs, bats, turtles and vegetation to obtain baseline data that will allow the effects of the water management strategy to be determined.
Other project dates: Come along on this new program that aims to improve the health of the Paiwalla and Sunnyside Wetlands. Volunteers will be involved in a variety of activities including controling invasive weeds, helping with tree guards of exisiting plants, planting local native species, restoring tracks and trails.
Mount Gambier, November 2nd
Conservation Volunteers will be holding an info session in the Hawkins Biodiversity Garden, followed by a talk on creating biodiversity in your garden. Come and learn about what wildlife you can attract to a garden full of indigenous plants.
Conservation Volunteers are promoting the Hawkins Medical Clinic and CVA community engagement garden this month. We are raising awareness on how our community can have attractive gardens with a balanced ecosystem for all animals including bird, butterflies and frogs. Plant species included in the Hawkins garden are sustainable and low maintenance indigenous plants that have lots of colour with flowers all year round.
This session is for anyone who is interested in the activities of Conservation Volunteers, so please come and meet us and find out more about volunteering on our future projects, with opportunities to join teams locally, around Australia and overseas.
We are holding native plant raffles at our Hawkins Biodiversity Garden projects this November. All volunteers attending will go into the draw to win some native plants from our region to plant in their own garden. The talk and visit will last about an hour.
Brookfield Conservation Park, November 3rd
Brookfield Conservation Park, located 128km from Adelaide, provides one of the last safe-havens for Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats. Conservation activities to re-establish native grassland areas provide vital food for the wombat. In addition, the research station at Brookfield CP enables scientists, students and volunteers to better understand the devastating effects of the emerging health issue of the wombats and assist in developing long term management strategies.
One of only 2 hairy-nosed wombat species in the world, the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat is a state faunal emblem and local icon. Vital habitat restoration activities and important research at Brookfield Conservation Park will assist the species to overcome challenges and ensure that the wombat's do indeed have a Wild Future in South Australia.
This project is funded by the Global Giving program. Generous donations through this program have provided the support we need for these activities to occur.
Come along, meet like-minded people and help with surveying of wildlife and vegetation, as well as park maintenance including fencing and weed management. Join our team of volunteers in activities which are focused on protecting the wombats and their habitat.
Mount Gambier, November 4th
Come outdoors with Conservation Volunteers in Mt Gambier this Spring. We are holding native plant raffles at our Hawkins Biodiversity Garden projects this November. All volunteers attending will go into the draw to win some native plants from our region to plant in their own garden.
Please join us on the day and be part of our developing biodiversity gardens in Mt Gambier. Come and get your hands dirty to create a new habitat garden at the Hawkins Medical Centre. Our aim is to create a healthy, attractive garden using native plants that thrive in our local conditions. This garden habitat will be an inspirational site for raising awareness about local biodiversity and learning about local plants, birds and butterflies, some of which may be harbouring in your own garden.
Activities volunteers will be undertaking include pruning, feeding the garden, weeding and we will also conduct a survey to see what nature we have attracted to the garden since the first plantings. Come and try out volunteering with us for a day, guaranteed you will meet new people and learn something new about the environment, at the same time just being able to get out and enjoy the outdoors!

Join us at the Magazine Creek Wetlands to discover the abundant birdlife at a site that is normally closed to the public, and assist with our water bird surveys.
Magazine Creek Wetlands is part of a series of constructed wetlands that form the Barker Inlet Wetlands, the largest constructed wetlands in Australia. Among other things the wetlands were designed to provide a range of habitat for birds, including breeding and nursery areas for water birds. 130 different species have been recorded to date, such as pelicans, spoonbills and cormorants, as well as many migratory birds from the Northern hemisphere that visit the area from September.
