More than 200 volunteers planted 6,500 native seedlings along the Sturt River in the City of Marion on Sunday, June 4, as part of World Environment Day events.

The Sturt River is known as Warripari in the Kaurna language.

The community planting event was coordinated by the Friends of Sturt River Landcare with support from the City of Marion.

Volunteers planted thousands of native seedlings, comprising 23 different species, to create an open red gum grassland.

The Lions Club of Hallett Cove & Districts Inc cooked a free barbecue on the day.

The event was a collaborative partnership between the City of Marion and Friends of Sturt River Landcare Group.
