This week’s news

05.06 Massonia pustulata

Editorial 30 June 2015

You need to get your legs working and sometimes your feet wet to really enjoy what our amazing piece of natural beauty has to offer.

Saturday 4 July is a NOT TO BE MISSED event organised by FOSTER (Friends of the St Francis Nature Reserves) in Cape St Francis.  It is a 2 – 3 hour walk-and-talk with Richard Cowling (history and future of conservation in our area and the importance thereof), Bart Logie (historian, author and raconteur of note will talk about the recent history of the area), and Caryl Logie who will talk about the fynbos she is so passionate and knowledgeable about.  Then Dave Bowmer will talk about the forest thicket areas that are unique to our reserves and the wildlife that inhabits these.

So the fitness freaks can do parkrun and then join the rest – it starts 09:00 for 09:30 from the Cape St Francis Resort (where you can enjoy great specials for lunch afterwards).  The cost is R100 per person (R50 all under 13)  as this is a fundraiser for FOSTER – join these guys and see how well they spend their funds.

Lekker stap, en lekker lees
