Wildlife corridors are being created along Dry and Cobbler creeks and River Torrens Linear Park by Tea Tree Gully Council and local volunteers.

These corridors already have an abundance of river red gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensisand blue gum (Eucalyptus leucoxylon) trees to provide food and homes for native animals, birds and insects.

While koalas are not endemic to the Adelaide region, they are a much-treasured native species.

Annual revegetation projects in these reserves has seen further blue gum and red gum plantings, as well as the planting of a diversity of under-storey species.

This year more than 2,000 seedlings were planted at Modbury’s Edinburgh Reserve, within the Dry Creek wildlife corridor on National Tree,Day in July this year. 

Friends of Dry Creek have been working on revegetating Valley View Reserve, which is also a part of the Dry Creek wildlife corridor.

As trees are also vital to helping us cope with climate change, we plant up to 15,000 trees annually across the City, including almost 2,000 street trees.
