Applications for the 2021-22 Reservoirs Partnership Program are closed.

Information on any future rounds will be posted to this website.

Our Reservoirs Partnership Program supports grassroots events and projects held at our reservoir reserves and managed by South Australian not-for-profit organisations. They champion conservation, education and recreation, and help connect communities with our reservoir reserves for their enjoyment and preservation.

In its inaugural year (2020-21), the program supported nature-based activities for school-aged, disadvantaged children, kayaking and other paddling activities for community groups, a nature-based adventure triathlon, and a ‘come and try’ experience for people of all abilities to enjoy the reservoir reserves.
