To celebrate Adelaide’s global status as a National Park City event goers can embrace nature in person outside and from the comfort of indoors or online through a great range of events that will warm the senses.

Here are 5 types of events to connect you with nature this June:

1. Take a winter stroll in Adelaide's favourite gardens

 Appreciate the beauty of the Adelaide, Mount Lofty and Wittunga Botanic Gardens with free guided walks this winter.

 Rug up and take some time out to explore a different side to our much-loved botanical gardens and learn insights from the Friends of the Botanic Gardens.

2. Create through nature

 From making a butterfly garden to Aboriginal weaving workshops there are many ways to get creative with nature during Adelaide National Park City Month.

 Creating through nature is a form of relaxation and a great way of getting inspired no matter what the season.

3. Discover the power of storytelling

 Who says that nature is only about being outdoors?

 Reading about nature is a special way of discovering what is in your garden or local park.

 Adelaide National Park City Month will ignite the minds of our youngest nature enthusiasts with nature story time events at Mitcham, Goodwood and Blackwood libraries and Unley Town Hall.

4. Celebrate World Environment and Ocean Day

 Nature deserves to be celebrated with Adelaide National Park City Month nicely falling on World Environment Day (5 June) and World Ocean Day(8 June).

 Why not dedicate the entire month to appreciating South Australia’s spectacular surrounds and stunning coastlines?

 Pick an event, stroll along the beach and learn how you can get involved in our coastal and marine environment at OceanFest at Marine Discovery Centre.

5. Explore nature online

 The online world can help us discover more about nature through an abundance of resources.

 From learning about nature apps, to discovering how to grow vegetables virtually the online world will bring us together this winter.
