Parks get by with a little help from their friends

Ashleigh Coombs - Thursday, October 11, 2018

The 31st Friends of Parks Forum was held recently at Stenhouse Bay Hall in Yorke Peninsula’s Innes National Park, with the theme ‘Preserving our Past and Protecting our Future’.

More than 150 people attended the forum, which ran from the 14th to the 16th of September, including the Member for Narungga, Fraser Ellis MP who opened the event.

Narungga man Chris Angove and his family gave a traditional Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony and led the delegates on a cultural bus tour.

Innes National Park Ranger in Charge Mark Davison said the biannual forum was a culmination of two years of planning by the Friends of Innes National Park and Natural Resources Northern and Yorke staff, with support from the Friends of Troubridge Island and the Friends of Althorpe Island.
