Courses and events

We have a range of courses and events throughout the year to help you learn new nature skills, meet like-minded people and have a lot of fun.

Seminar series: Towards Cooler, Greener, Wilder

Our monthly online seminar series gives you a chance to hear about our key projects to cool, green and wild metropolitan Adelaide. There are great discussions on the approaches to our work too, like biodiversity-sensitive urban design (BSUD), water-sensitive urban design (WSUD) and the Urban Greening Strategy. You can learn a lot, ask questions and find out how you can help.

Coming up next:

Water smart homes and neighbourhoods

Thursday 18 July, 4pm to 5pm (online)

It's more important than ever that creative solutions are used to help manage water to sustain urban landscapes, and capture it for reuse as close to the source as possible.

This seminar is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable urban development and effective water management to learn about the latest practices and innovations in the field.

Join Belinda Dohring, Program Manager of Water Sensitive SA, for an insightful discussion on:

  • Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) — what it is, why it is practiced and its significance for urban planning
  • property scale opportunities to manage rainfall before it becomes urban stormwater
  • neighbourhood scale WSUD features — including how they keep waterways clean, reduce flooding and water trees by sustaining our urban landscapes, plus where you can see them in action
  • catchment scale WSUD features — why we need them and their positive benefits for everyone.

Register your spot below and a link will be sent to you.

You can also listen back to past talks from our seminar series on YouTube.
