Lantana eradication morning – free trees! – Sunday 13 April 2014

Dear all,

You might have noticed that we are undertaking monthly alien invader removal days. As added motivation for the this action on Sunday 13 April 2014 (08:00-11:00) we will hand a small indigenous tree to every person that helps!

Thorny Lantanas are about to take over our hiking route on the top of the koppie as can be seen in the photo below. We cleared a decent portion of this hiking trail during our previous action and would like to continue with this. Please join us if you can, it is very rewarding to see the work that you did when you walk in the reserve again afterwards!
