List your park's event online

Ashleigh Coombs - Friday, December 15, 2017

Attention Friends:

Parks SA has developed a new online feature where you can list an event on your park's website. 

Are you holding a working bee, planting day, bushwalking event, surfing competition or trail run in a park?

Perhaps you’re organising a meditation retreat or a parents’ group meeting and want more people to find out about it and get involved.

You can list your event on our website.

    Remnant Native Vegetation Plan - City of Marion

    Ashleigh Coombs - Friday, December 01, 2017

    I am pleased to advise that after approximately 18 months of pretty hard slog, many many reports and liaison with elected members and other staff we have been able to release the draft Remnant Native Vegetation Plan 2018 to 2023 for community consultation. This document will be the basis for guiding and funding ongoing works to protect precious Remnant Native Vegetation across the City of Marion. Please have a look and undertake the very small survey. Please also feel free to send the link to other members of your groups and anyone you think may be interested. Hopefully we will have some overwhelmingly positive feedback to allow this exciting initiative to continue, I am quite dependant on your support to ensure this occurs. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss this further.
