World Environment Day



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


Thank you to all the schools that came to Adelaide Botanic Garden on 5 June for the 2019 World Environment Day celebrations. We were delighted to welcome more than 2,500 reception - year 7 students who chose from 40 fun and interactive workshops throughout the day.

These budding environmental custodians learned about important topics such as preserving endangered species, native bees, worms and compost and so much more! 

Presenters from respected organisations such as Sea Shepherd, Cleland Wildlife Park, Scouts SA, Jane Goodall Foundation, Nature Play SA, Botanic Gardens of South Australia, SA Seed Conservation Centre and State Herbarium regularly attend the special day to impart their knowledge to the state’s students.

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

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

The theme for the UN's 2020 World Environment Day is #BeatPlasticPollution.

 Registrations to attend will open early 2020 so watch this space!
