Ecohydrological Restoration Assessment of the Aldinga Washpool and Blue Lagoon”

Ben Taylor, Nature Glenelg Trust


Since January 2021, Nature Glenelg Trust has been investigating the pre-colonisation ecohydrology of the Washpool and Blue Lagoon and

developing hydrological restoration options. This has involved archival research, discussions with a broad range of people with knowledge of the site, review of contemporary reports, interpretation of data and collection of additional data. Ben will present a summary of the draft findings.



Our meetings are held in the St Ann's Church Hall, Stonehouse Lane, Aldinga

All welcome!

Please contact John on 0488 552 797 if you would like more information.


Since1987, the Friends have been actively involved in planting trees. Seed collected from the Scrub is propagated by Friends and local school children.

By removing invasive weeds such as veldt grass, bridal creeper, olives, rhamnus and bone seed to name just a few, Friends aim to encourage natural regeneration of indigenous vegetation.

Like all voluntary conservationists, our group combines the expertise of its various members in order to promote the long term health of the naturally occurring flora and fauna of the locality.

The Friends of Aldinga Scrub are registered with the Southern Volunteering (SA) as an approved organisation in respect of Centrelink's voluntary work provisions.
