National Tree Day
Adelaide City Council holds a community native seedling planting day at the end of July each year in partnership with Planet Ark National Tree Day.

Bat Track aims to find out more about bats in the City and provides the local community with the opportunity to record bats from their properties. Schools and residents are invited to take part in the program and record bats over the summer months.
Each species of bat has a unique high frequency call which is generally not audible to humans. By recording bat calls using a special bat detector we can determine what species are flying in the area.
Bats are very unique animals and may be the most diverse and abundant native mammal in the City. By becoming involved in Bat Track you will learn more about these interesting animals and will play an important role in managing our City's natural environment.
If you would like to monitor bats from your property please contact the Adelaide City Council Customer Centre, 8203 7203.
