WHAT WE DO
Friends do their bit for the Reserve, its surroundings and other approved projects, by organising hikes, and sharing knowledge with other friends and visitors.
We provide technical skills and manual labour to maintain hiking paths, fire breaks, making sign boards, construct bridges, steps and paths.
We cut down and removed alien vegetation such as Pine, Port Jackson, Bluegum and Rooikrans and others in and around the reserve.
Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction. – E. O. Wilson
