What’s happening in the First Creek Wetland’s ‘settlement’ pond?An alga has been growing there that hasn’t been recorded in Adelaide for many years.
We highly recommend you read the following documents. They will help you plan your visit and ensure the best possible experience and learning outcomes:
COVID-19 safety measures
The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our highest priority and, in welcoming school groups, we are implementing COVID-19 compliant protocols to offer a safe and fun experience for all groups that attend our programs.
Class groups and supervision
Remember there are a maximum of 30 students for educator led programs. Bring enough adults to ensure student safety.
For the best quality experience for the children and highest safety standards, the Department for Education has recommended the following ratios:
• Kindergarten to Year 2 - 1:6
• Year 3 to Year 7 - 1:10
• Year 8 to Year 12 - 1:15
Please note: Students, teachers and supervisors must not attend if they are unwell. In the event that one of our Botanic Garden staff members is feeling unwell on the day of your visit, the staff member will be required to stay home. This is to ensure that no students or adults from your school are placed at risk. If this occurs, we will work with you to provide an alternative to your booked session.
