Invasie alien removal – 16 and 23 Nov 2013

The Friends of the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve is supporting Dr. Piet Vosloo with two invasive alien removal events on Saturday 16 and 23 November 2013 on the koppie directly east of the Gift Acres estate in the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve. The primary goal is to ring bark invasive trees. Queen of the Night and Lantana will also be attacked. Cutting a path open to gain access to the invasive trees will often be required.

We will meet at 09:00 on both occasions on the open plot across from Unit 6 Gift Acres Estate. The estate is located on the Northern Boundary of FGNR, 72 Lizann Avenue, behind the Gift Acres Convenience Centre.

Please bring along your own refreshments (water, lunch, etc.) as well as appliances such as secateurs, herbicide spray bottles, garden gloves, heavy duty shears and tree saws. We anticipate that we will work from 09:00 to 15:00 on each day so remember a sun hat and sunscreen. We understand that everybody is busy so if you have only an hour or two please do still come.

If you are willing to help or want to request further information please contact or
– Jaco 071 140 4412
– Piet 082 374 4497
– Rienie 083 264 2860

Your cooperation is appreciated in our efforts to rid the FGNR from the blight of invasive aliens that threaten the natural ecosystem and beauty of the reserve.
