Plant and Seed Conservation

Please note that this trail is available as a self-guided trail only at this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Students led along this trail will learn about a range of species of South Australian plants, including many listed as threatened or endangered.

One in four native South Australian plant species (more than 1,000) are considered threatened.

Students will consider global issues such as habitat loss, climate change and impact of introduced species at a local level.

Students will also investigate scientific concepts such as seed structure, dispersal and conditions required for germination, plant recruitment, symbiotic relationships and plant biodiversity.

This trail also aims to increase the knowledge, awareness and opportunities for environmental action of this generation of young people.
