The Port Environment Centre is a community driven organisation and 'gathering place' that supports the community in living sustainably, valuing, caring for, learning about and enjoying the experience of the natural coastal, marine and estuarine environment.
In partnership with the City of Port Adelaide Enfield, we are offering FREE ‘mature’ trees (each valued at $50-60) to plant in your gardens, in a joint project with your neighbours. We are looking for ‘Street Champions’ to bring their neighbours together and collectively commit to planting a native tree or several (provided) and 4 native understory plants per household (purchased).
Head to portenvironmentcentre.com.au/growing-together to find out more.
Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest by April 11.

This guide highlights some of our cherished coastal places. We hope this guide inspires and supports you to discover and connect with our diverse natural environments and that you enjoy connecting with Port Adelaide’s nature as much as we do.
Our coastal environments and the sites shared in this guide are treasured by many. We encourage you to take time to observe, learn and tread lightly when enjoying our coastal places.

Who we are
The Port Environment Centre is a place to meet like-minded individuals and learn more about the local environment, local environmental community groups and how to live more sustainably in your own home.
Come in to talk to us about the environment or sustainable living, find a book in our community library, or recycle your unusual items in our resource recovery station run by the Port Environment Centre Waste Advisory Group (PECWAG).
A big part of what we do here at the centre are events and activities. To be kept up to date with upcoming events and opportunities sign up to our mailing list for monthly emails.
If you need a space to host an environment focused event or meeting, ask about hosting an event here.
There are so many great ways to get involved with many active local environmental community groups. We would love to help you get connected, so drop in for a chat, consider volunteering or attend one of our events.
