Acknowledgement of Country

The Board of the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium recognise South Australia's Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the State's lands, water, plants and animals - commonly known as Country.

We observe that Country is central to the social, cultural and spiritual lives of Aboriginal people.

We will build respectful and honest relationships through our work and develop a better awareness of Aboriginal history, knowledge and culture.
