In celebration of trees
Sunday, 26 July is National Tree Day and time to celebrate our significant trees. The Adelaide and Wittunga Botanic Gardens are wonderful natural resources. Adelaidians are asked to take part in the National Tree day celebrations. This is an opportunity to discover some beautiful and significant trees right in our midst.
