Adelaide Botanic Garden's World Environment Day celebrations are the state’s biggest WED event.

Presenters from respected organisations such as CSIRO, Sea Shepherd, Cleland Wildlife Park, KESAB, Botanic Gardens of South Australia, SA Seed Conservation Centre and State Herbarium regularly attend to impart their knowledge to the state’s budding environmentalists.

World Environment Day is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.

Adelaide Botanic Garden has educated tens-of-thousands of SA school students at its annual celebration, which started in 1996.
