Recently, Mylor Parklands was awarded Heritage Agreement status. This contractual agreement between State Government and Council provides important protection to land of high conservation value.
The Mylor Parklands contain siginificant areas of native vegetation and provides habitat to a number of national, state and regionally threatened plants and wildlife including the Southern Brown Bandicoot, Bassian Thrush and small population of flora species called Euphrasia collina ssp osbornii (Osborn's Eyebright).
"Only 11% of the original native vegation of this region remains and is surrounded by areas of intensive human settlement," Biodiveristy Officer Renae Eden said.
"The parklands are one of a few small remnants of native vegetation in Mylor that are protected for conservation."
Bushcare activities at the site have been a collaboration between the Adelaide Hills Council, Mylor Parklands Bushcare Group and Landscapes SA Hills & Fleurieu Board over many years.
