Myponga Reservoir Reserve Open Day

April 14, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Myponga Reservoir Reserve Open Day


 


Join us for a FREE fun-filled morning at the Myponga Reservoir Reserve Grand Opening!


There will be kite flying, junk play and a children’s play area. Trail Run SA will be joined by South Australian Olympic marathon runner Jessica Trengove as they open the trails with a social run or walk with varying distances. Trees for Life will run hands-on sessions on identifying native habitats and species and propagating new plants, as well as host guided walks with tips for bird watching and hiking.


We are excited to be teaming up with Reservoirs South Australia to offer the first public glimpse into this beautiful landscape.


Equipped with beautiful walks, picturesque scenery and an array of plants and wildlife – it’s an ideal place for families to explore, have a picnic and immerse themselves in the natural surrounds.


Then as we wind down in the afternoon, Nature Play SA are offering a series of guided experiences including:
