About us

Amongst It arose out of a desire to highlight people’s diverse expressions of love for the beautiful natural places in South Australia, and to sponsor new and varied ways for people to connect with and express appreciation for nature here in SA.

We're taking stock of the great work that's already happening, and kicking off a few new projects to find the best ways to do that.

Our hunch is that a positive, creative approach to nature connection is one of the most important conservation activities we can undertake. We can't expect people to care about something with which they have no connection.

Our origins

We're part of the Nature of SA, a sector-wide partnership experimenting with new ways forward for Nature and society in South Australia. After a statewide consultation process, the Nature of SA partnership is running a series of experiments, of which we are one.

The team

We're run by a small working group from a variety of organisations:

Jill Woodlands, Amongst It Coordinator, NCSSA

Vicki-Jo Russell AM, Trees for Life
Jody Gates, Department for Environment and Water
Allys Todd, Conservation Council of SA
Ryan Hubbard, Hinterland Innovation
Robin Parkin, Hinterland Innovation
