Habitat Hedgerows

What do native bandicoots and berries share? And how can habitat hedgerows help them?

In this hands-on family-friendly workshop, we’ll share our discoveries on why protecting native bandicoot and berry habitat is so important. Hosted by Dr Jasmin Packer, Wildlife Ecologist, with special guests Dr Chris Brodie, Weed Ecologist with South Australian Herbarium, and Professor Gus Nathan, sustainability specialist with University of Adelaide.

Bring your own loppers or secateurs, and together we’ll create a habitat hedgerow from scratch. Along the way we’ll share tips and tricks on:

  • finding the best berry patch for your habitat hedgerow
  • spotting tell-tale differences between native and invasive berries
  • pruning your hedgerow so it’s brimming with native bandicoots, berries, and other wildlife
  • helping endangered bandicoots by sharing the adventures of whoever moves in.

Location Information

Brown Hill Creek, or Willawilla in Kaurna, is a beautiful creek that flows from Crafers in the Adelaide Hills, through a deep woodland valley, and down into Mitcham. We\'ll meet you at The Bee Hub! This special little social enterprise is run by Rossi von der Borch and her happy menagerie of bees, chooks, and friendly dogs. As you\'re driving up Brown Hill Creek Rd from Mitcham, The Bee Hub will be on your right. Keep driving for 200 m past the Bee Hub and you\'ll find the parking bay on your left. Listen for the bubbling creek as you stroll back down to The Bee Hub :-) Heart-warming fire pits, soup and hot drinks will keep you warm (gold coin donation to support The Bee Hub\'s conservation activities would be greatly appreciated). Please let us know if you require wheelchair access and we'll arrange logistics with you.
