BioR & Natural Resources SAMDB's joint project is to reconstruct habitat & restore diversity to Frahn's Farm, Monarto (image supplied by BioR)

BioR Australia is a non-profit organisation, with a vision of creating inter-generational ownership by collaboratively reconstructing, restoring and managing native habitats, to maintain biodiversity and reduce ecological footprints.

Volunteering at Frahn's Farm Planting Festival 2019 is just one of the many ways you can contribute to supporting BioR's valuable work. Frahn's Farm is a 550ha property located on Crown land, in the eastern Mount Lofty Ranges (Lot 184 Wattle Road, Monarto). Research shows a decline in native woodland fauna, with an increasing number of vulnerable and endangered native species endemic to the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges (including the Restless Flycatcher (Myiagra inquieta) - pictured below, whose status is currently listed as vulnerable throughout Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges). In 2016, BioR Australia signed a Memorandum of Understanding, to work collaboratively with Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basement (Natural Resources SAMDB ), to undertake restoration works on Frahn's Farm which was identified as having considerable value for grassy woodland restoration and as habitat for declining woodland birds.

Register here to volunteer at Frahn's Farm Planting Festival 2019 and in return, you will be provided with fully catered meals and snacks throughout the day (dietary requirements can be indicated on registration) and the opportunity of mingling with like-minded people! On the day, you will be involved in planting habitat for wildlife and have the opportunity to sign-up to volunteer in a joint research project of BioR and University of Adelaide which will install nest boxes, to provide homes for a variety of hollow-nesting animals.

The following BioR merchandise is available to purchase online and will be available for purchase on the day (100% of the proceeds go to restoring habitat for declining wildlife): BioR branded keep cups (2 sizes: small or medium), 2 types of jigsaws (choice of Emu Chicks or Gecko), sets of greeting cards (5 per pack - choice of wetland birds, desert birds, local flora and fauna) and tote bags (featuring BioR's emblem, the mistletoe bird which is a species of flowerpecker native to most of Australia).

What to bring: water bottles, plates, cups and cutlery, sun/rain protection and warm clothes, gloves for planting, rubber boots and a trowel.
