Patawalonga Creek was once part of ‘the Reedbeds’, an expanse of wetlands that stretched from Glenelg to the Port Adelaide River and as far inland as Torrensville. The fertile soils and abundant water attracted early settlers to this area, and development followed, with the diverse watercourse of the Patawalonga Creek being contained in suburban concrete canals.
There is, however, one site that still contains some of the original creek along with the last example of the habitat that used to exist across the Reedbeds. The existence of this remnant vegetation is quite remarkable when thinking about the impact of European settlement in the area.
Join us for these half-day projects from 9am - 1pm to undertake bird, frog and vegetation surveys that will allow us to gain a better understanding of the different species that are currently using this habitat.
