Join Nature Glenelg Trust ecologists, traditional custodians and other partners on a tour of some of our wetland restoration projects.
Nature Glenelg Trust is turning 10 in 2022. To celebrate this milestone we are inviting friends and supporters to join us on a bus tour of wetland restoration project sites on the Fleurieu Peninsula. We will be visiting:
- The Washpool at Sellicks Beach, one of the only intact coastal lagoons remaining in the Adelaide region, which NGT has been developing restoration plans for in collaboration with the Kaurna traditional custodians and local community members;
- Yundi Nature Conservancy, an example of a critically endangered Fleurieu Peninsula Swamp, privately owned, that NGT has been helping the landholder restore;
- A Ngarrindjeri midden site on Sir Richard Peninsula, Goolwa, where we will hear from traditional custodian Kyla McHughes and NGT will explain our Goolwa Cockle monitoring program;
- NGT's breeding facility for the nationally vulnerable Southern Bell Frog at Clayton.
The day begins at 7.15 am when we board the tour bus at Frederick St Unley, at the northern end of Unley Oval (departing by 7.30 sharp). We return to Frederick St by 5.00 pm. The tour is catered and includes morning tea at Yundi and lunch at Goolwa barrage.
