Friends of Sturt River Landcare

We are a group of nature-loving residents who came together to grow a natural green corridor where we live, along the Sturt River (Warripari) on the Adelaide Plains. For over a decade we have worked cooperatively with land managers, volunteers and other community groups to replant and connect local-native plantings around the river. We plant species endemic to the Adelaide Plains to create habitat, improve biodiversity, provide shade, shelter and fresh air to help cool our climate and keep our suburbs liveable.

OUR AIMS: Maintain, restore & re-establish local-native plant communities for biodiversity & climate resilience, along the lower Sturt River, wherever possible. Create a community of people who are willing and able to work together to care for and conserve the area in perpetuity. These aims to be carried out for the benefit and enjoyment of residents and visitors alike, now and in the future. Our activities include: – planting, maintenance, weed control, seed collection, plant propagation and bush regeneration – community education such as bird watching, interpretive site walks, recording frog-calls – advocacy/working with landholders to improve their planning for remnant vegetation, revegetation and tree cover – directly funding and supporting this work via grants, donations and volunteer effort.
