Volunteers at Patawalonga Creek, South Australia

Calling all Kathmandu Summit Club Members (in Adelaide) to help Mother Earth on Mother’s Day

Kathmandu Summit Club Members have the opportunity to get outdoors and make a difference by joining Conservation Volunteers at our upcoming volunteer day at Patawalonga Creek, Adelaide on Sunday 14 May. Look after Mother Earth, whilst also sharing the day with your mum on Mother’s Day! You will also enjoy a morning tea on the day.

More than just a loyalty programme, Summit Club is about getting out and enjoying every minute of the outdoors and working together to keep our communities green.

Patawalonga Creek, Adelaide

Patawalonga Creek was once a diverse watercourse running through the Adelaide plains which has now been contained in many places throughout the suburbs in concrete canals.  There is, however, one part where a significant remnant of the Swamp Paperbark plant community remains. Conservation Volunteers Australia and Friends of Patawalonga Creek have been restoring the creek through seed collecting, native vegetation planting, weed control and surveys.  This stretch of creek is an important refuge for aquatic life including tortoises, frog and waterbirds.  Volunteer activities include maintenance of the existing remnant native vegetation and revegetation sites through removing invasive weeds, checking tree-guards and removing them where no longer required.

What you need to know:

The day will run from 10am until 2.00pm.

Activities will be family friendly and we encourage you to go at you own leisurely pace.

A morning tea will provided but bring along your own lunch.  Don’t forget a water bottle too.

Conservation Volunteers Australia will provide all tools and personal protection equipment including sturdy gloves and safety vests.

To register for the Adelaide event please complete the online registration form by Monday May 8, 2017.

The next volunteer event will be held in Sorrento Beach, Perth on Saturday 17th June 2017.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to volunteer with Kathmandu Summit Club in 2017.
