Friends of Cleland National Park
Come work with us in beautiful Cleland Conservation Park (not the Wildlife Park) We are currently doing weed removal in Waterfall Gully, close to the Mt Lofty Track. Some weeds are 3 times as tall as a person, others are tiny and easily removed. Plenty of challenge, and afterwards excellent coffee at the Waterfall Gully kiosk.
The Friends of Cleland National Park now travel across 9 different locations on and around the length of Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty Trails including our new favourite Steub Trail. The group's President is Gray Rowe, secretary Carole Pinnock. On many of our visits, particularly in Waterfall Gully, we have sighted the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot. This beautiful little animal is now on our logo. Cleland National Park includes high quality heath and Mount Lofty Swamp vegetation creating habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna including the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot. Since 2020, we started monitoring our beloved bandicoots with an infrared camera to help us understand more about these little native creatures. Join us to give back to this beautiful park and do something for our endangered wildlife. Further is available from our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofClelandNationalPark and we welcome your enquiries.
