    Red Gum Gully (or Cedar Avenue Reserve as it is officially known) in the Adelaide Hills suburb of Blackwood features remnant endemic vegetation and abundant wildlife. The reserve’s winter creek and rather steep slopes dotted with gums make for an inspiring landscape just 25 minutes from Adelaide CBD.

    Volunteers meet every third Sunday of the month (except January) at 9:30am to look after this precious natural resource and enjoy its beauty. Not only do we enjoy bushcare activities, we also enjoy spending time with like-minded people and doing something to help our natural environment and community.

    Key objectives of the group include:

    • encouraging regeneration of remnant species through the management of introduced species
    • increasing biodiversity through the planting of local provenance species
    • enhancing wildlife corridors; linking habitats and providing sanctuary, food, water and nesting places for many animals, birds and insects

    If you’re interested in volunteering on a one-off or regular basis we’d love you to join us – no experience necessary! Just bring a hat, sunscreen, drinking water and gardening gloves. Children and dogs welcome! It’s worth contacting us to let us know you’ll be coming so we can let you know where we will be.
