Last evening BotSoc and OCF presented an evening of talks around the recent fires and their effect on our fynbos. Pat Miller, Anina Lee and Giorgio Lombardi talked about recovery of the local flora, Restios and the logistics of fire control, as we walked from the Visitors’ Centre to the Waterfall. The latter was like a fairyland with lights and sparkling wine and we all learnt a great deal about the important regeneration taking place on our doorstep. Then, to cap the evening off we had some much needed rain and can now look forward to seeing a renewed spurt of growth as the fynbos returns to life.
The event was held to raise much needed funds for the repair of burnt signage and benches within the Fernkloof Reserve.
