We have been informed that all City of Tshwane’s (CoT) nature reserves and resorts (including the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve) will be closed as of today with immediate effect until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The instruction comes from Minister David Makhura, Premier of Gauteng and communicated to us through CoT Nature Conservation and Resorts.
We will, however, be able to continue with our scheduled monthly hack this Sunday at 07:00, as this is deemed permissible by the CoT. We therefore urge members to use the opportunity to improve the reserve’s wellbeing by assisting us in the removal of invasive plants on Sunday. We will ensure that we practice social distancing as prescribed for Covid-19.
We will inform everyone of any further updates or changes to the Minister’s decision.
