Nature Foundation hosts a wide range of events every year for our members, supporters and the broader community so there's a lot to choose from!
Nature Foundation is paying close attention to health recommendations regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We may need to reconsider many of our upcoming events and activities - this page will be updated if circumstances change.
If hands-on conservation work is your thing, join us for a planting day or come along to a Working Bee on one of our nature reserves. We also host tours to see conservation in action, presentations on our work and much more! We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events this year.
Online event bookings are coming soon, stay tuned! For further information on any event please contact our office on 08 8340 2880.
Nature's Foundations Exhibition Opening
Mrs Harris' Shop, 39 Jervois Tce, Torrensville
Friday 5 August 2022
Friday 5 August, 6.00 pm
Please join us for the opening of the 2022 SALA exhibition, Nature’s Foundations, showing the work of three artists who have spent time on two Nature Foundation Nature Reserves, Hiltaba and Witchelina, through our Artist in Residence program.
John Whitney, Alison Binks and Jane Rusden have created three beautiful collections of work, reflecting their respective perceptions of, and experiences on the properties.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy the company of like-minded people, some wonderful art, and to support the work of Nature Foundation. Proceeds from the exhibition will be generously donated to the Foundation.
For those who prefer not to join the crowd on opening night, a smaller event, Night Shift, will be held at 7pm on Thursday 18 August, where at least one of the artists will be in attendance.
Or see the exhibition in your own time. The exhibition runs from Friday 5 to Sunday 28 August.
To enable us to keep you safe, please be sure to RSVP to either event by email to [email protected]
Mrs Harris’ Shop is an intimate little gallery that runs monthly exhibitions. From 1930–1970, it was a neighbourhood general store, and had later iterations as a shoemakers’ studio and warehouse.
