Celebrate the Nature Festival with a guided tour of the First Creek Wetlands in Adelaide Botanic Garden.
The First Creek Wetlands form an important part of Adelaide Botanic Garden’s water security plan.
Within the coming year or two, the entire garden will be irrigated with water sourced from the wetland's underground aquifer, which has been injected with storm water over the last seven years.
It is an example of taking positive environmental action to use storm water in a resourceful way, and at the same time gives the garden a source of water to keep its plants thriving.
Join the Wetlands Curator at Adelaide Botanic Garden, as he takes you on a guided tour of this special area, which combines technology and nature to create a home for a wide diversity of flora and fauna.
On the fascinating Nature Festival tour, you will learn about this increasingly important habitat, which not only filters and recycles water, but also improves the natural urban environment.
Meet at the Wetland Amphitheatre about 10 minutes before the start time. It will go for approx 1 hour.
