COVID-19 Coronavirus response update: 25 March 2020

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe, well and managing in this time of global crisis. As the COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing it is also changing how we do things on the ground. We are acutely aware of the importance of getting out in nature for many people's wellbeing and we have been working hard with the department to facilitate that in a safe manner.

Whilst we have had event protocols in place for the past week to ensure we were socially distancing correctly the latest round of announcements have left us in no position but to cancel all events until further notice.



First Falls Project Site

Wednesday, 5 February 2020, 9:30am

Morialta Conservation Park
We been working in the gully below First Falls since November 2012. However, already, we have pushed the woody weeds back from the basse of the First Falls, to the last bridge as you come up the creek. The habitat along here is important, riparian vegetation it is now poorly represented in the Adelaide Region. Native raspberry (rated as rare in probable decline) grows along the creek line, as does Leptospermum lanigerum, the silky tea tree, this is now rare in the Adelaide Hills and is rated as probably in decline. Drainage and blackberries are amongst the threats to this species.
Our work is focussed on the southern side of the creek, where native vegetation is more abundant, with the expectation that natural regeneration will occur.
meet at the interpretive signs adjacent to the top carpark closest to the First Falls.
Working bees are generally held on the first Wednesday of the month from 9:30 am.
