Hills Biodiversity Incorporated

Mobilising to prevent species loss

 

We often hear about species on the brink of extinction or the climate on the brink of collapse – and this sounds quite daunting and hopeless.  


However, community and landholders can work together to push back that brink!

 

Get Involved

 

Are you time-poor and still want to contribute to improving biodiversity in the Hills?

 

We get together for about 2 hours per month on the third Sunday of the month at 9am - no commitment, attend as many events as you want. We plant and/or weed, then enjoy a light lunch washed down with a drink of your choice.

 

It's a great way to meet and chat with like-minded people, and connect yourself with the local community. Find out more by contacting Warren on 0408 444 592.

Our Mission

Connecting landholders and volunteers to enhance the biodiversity of the Adelaide Hills.
