Discover the names of plants that are native to your area by searching for clues.
Have you ever wondered what plants are native to your local area?
What habitat does it provide?
As part of the Nature Festival South Australia we want to set you a challenge to learn to identify at least one local native plant.
To get you started, we’ve added compostable ID tags to a selection of native plants in many of City of Onkaparinga’s stunning natural areas. How many can you spot during the Festival?
For those plants that don’t have tags, you could use our NATUREhoodz project site on iNaturalist to discover images and names of wild plants and animals that other people have discovered in our reserves. You can also download the free iNaturalist app to become a citizen scientist and share your own observations. This clever app uses image recognition software and connects with experts to help you identify what you have seen.
So what are you waiting for?
When the Festival starts we will post a Naturehoodz Facebook post to invite you to share your photos of your favourite finds in the comments.
