Update on regulations and invitation to Mini-SASS on Sat 10 Oct

The Faerie Glen Nature Reserve is now operating under Level 1 of the Covid-19 regulations.  This translates to all previously restricted activities being allowed again and the picnic area open for the public again.  However, sanitising of hands and the wearing of masks at the entrance building remains mandatory. 

We would like to invite you to a Mini-SASS (Stream Assessment Scoring System) assessment on Saturday 10 October at 15:00 and take part in Citizen Science.  We will be evaluating the river health of the Moreletaspruit by making use of this unique bio-monitoring tool that was designed specifically for ordinary citizens (like ourselves) and school-going children to use.

Time:    15:00 –17:00

Where:  Meet @ Faerie Glen Nature Reserve main entrance

Who:     Everybody is welcome, including children

What to bring:  -Sun hat; face mask; magnifying glass
