How you can be part of the creation of Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta

It’s plant­i­ng sea­son and you’re invit­ed. Here’s how to reg­is­ter for Glenthorne’s com­mu­ni­ty plant­i­ng days.

There are plen­ty of ways to con­tribute to the cre­ation of Adelaide’s newest nation­al park, Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta, but there’s noth­ing quite like plant­i­ng a tree and watch­ing it grow.

The 208-hectare Glen­thorne prop­er­ty used to be a work­ing farm, but was pro­claimed as a nation­al park in May last year and is now being trans­formed into an excit­ing place where peo­ple can con­nect with nature.

There are many excit­ing projects under­way at Glen­thorne, includ­ing an exten­sive eco­log­i­cal restora­tion pro­gram which will see the even­tu­al plant­i­ng of 126,000 plants across 165 hectares – and that’s where you come in!

Glen­thorne Com­mu­ni­ty Plant­i­ng Days

Reg­is­tra­tions are now open for Glenthorne’s huge­ly pop­u­lar com­mu­ni­ty plant­i­ng days, which start this month.

By attend­ing a plant­i­ng day, you’ll have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to plant a tree and con­tribute to the cre­ation of the park, meet like-mind­ed peo­ple in the local com­mu­ni­ty who are pas­sion­ate about the envi­ron­ment, and enjoy a cof­fee on the house.

There are four dates to choose from this year – 13 June, 18 July, 1 August and 8 August – so there’s bound to be a date that suits you.

For fur­ther details on the plant­i­ng days and to reg­is­ter, head to Eventbrite.
