 Wetlands tour- Aquatic Plants of Willunga Basin with Paul Green

Join Paul Green for a tour of two of the Willunga Basin’s iconic wetlands. Hart Road wetland is a constructed wetland designed to capture and treat storm water on the northern edge of Aldinga Scrub. In contrast, The Washpool is a natural brackish wetland on the southern side of Aldinga Scrub. Paul will help us identify the aquatic plants and tell us about their ecological functions.

We will first meet at Hart Road wetland at 2pm. Meet at the carpark at the southern end of Rowley Road, Aldinga Beach. (Do not try and access the meeting point via Hart Road itself.) There are no toilet facilities at these events.

Come and learn about Biochar with Maccy Biochar

Maccy biochar workshops are run as a demonstration of making biochar using one of their small flame-capped kilns.

This event usually takes 2-3 hours during which time there is generally plenty of time for a discussion of the theory etc etc. so no need for a classroom situation.

The workshop will be held at the Bassett Boys School in St Luke's Street, Willunga, and is being run in partnership with Willunga National Trust and as a joint project with the Willunga Community Garden.

The biochar (approx 100 litres) we make during the workshop may be purchased on the day at $1/litre .

An outline of similar workshops is given on their website at: https://www.maccybiochar.com/training-courses.

Please bring all food and drinks, sun smart clothing and hats, good shoes, sunscreen etc. There are no toilets at this site, but public toilets are located on Hill Street, Willunga.
