Water is essential for life. Kaurna Miyurna (Kaurna People) understand water as their lifeblood, the veins of Country that flow and sustain all.
Adelaide’s urban creeks, rivers, estuaries, and wetlands provide essential habitat and refuges for native fauna while providing important recreational opportunities.
As most of Adelaide’s waterways run through private land, it is important for landowners to understand how their actions can improve waterway health, and the legal obligations they may have.
There are also important steps we can all take, regardless of where we live, to look after waterways.
This session has been developed specifically for our council partners, and everyone with an interest is welcome to attend.
You will hear from Tammy Partridge, Senior Project Officer Urban Water, Green Adelaide and Martin Stokes, Team Leader Water Allocation and Planning, Department for Environment and Water.
They will discuss:
• Green Adelaide's waterway education and capacity building project
• how we are connecting with communities on looking after waterways
• resources available to help councils and organisations get messaging out to communities
• the responsibilities of landowners including state government, local government, businesses, and individuals
• what a Best Practice Operating Procedure (BPOP) is and why they don't always apply
• Green Adelaide support.
This session will be recorded and made available on the Green Adelaide YouTube channel.
