Glenthorne National Park – Ityamaiitpinna Yarta – Community Planting Day

Glenthorne National Park – Ityamaiitpinna Yarta provides an important open space with opportunities for environmental restoration and recreation in nature.

In collaboration with National Parks and Wildlife Services SA, the Friends of Glenthorne, Kaurna People and the local community, we will be planting local native species on Kaurna land to recreate suitable habitat for threatened species.

This will help reduce immediate extinction risks and improve the long-term viability of threatened species and ecological communities such as the yellowish sedge-skipper. These threatened species do more for us than just add colour and beauty to the landscapes but act as native pollinators and are an essential building block of a healthy environment.

  • Please note that the planting area is spread throughout the park and requires reasonable level of fitness due to undulating terrains and short walks to the planting site.
  • Gloves and trowels can be supplied but please bring your own if you have them available.
  • Please dress appropriately for the weather.
  • Light refreshments will be provided, so please email us to let us know if you have any dietary requirements but please bring your own lunch if you wish to have lunch on site.
  • Parking is limited so we encourage you to carpool where possible.

This is a free event but please register. If you have any questions, email Deborah Nagloo ([email protected])

We look forward to seeing you there for a great day of planting!
