Park Friends 1: A Walk in the Park

Listen Now    13’37”

Recorded on various locations in the Black Hill, Morialta and Horsnell Gully Conservation Parks in the Adelaide Hills close to the City of Adelaide, the twelve programs in Park Friends reflect the diversity of our Conservation Parks and the work of many people across South Australia to ensure that the natural environment is preserved and wherever possible restored. One of the contributors in this first program quotes Charles Jordan of the Nature Conservancy in the USA – “What they do not value, they do not protect, and what they do not protect, they will lose”. Most of this introductory program was recorded during a walk in Morialta Conservation Park; this helps sets the scene for the Park Friends series.
