SATURDAY 21st: Meet at the Post House at 10h00 and travel to various commonage sites to look for rare and threatened plants. Tony Rebelo will be training us on the use of I-Spot – an online, interactive tool for identifying your photographs of wildlife (plants, mammals, birds, reptiles, etc.) (
SUNDAY 22nd: Meet at the Post House at 10h00. This will be a CREW volunteer training day and anyone is welcome to join. Details to be confirmed, but it is likely that we will visit Michael Swart’s farm for this day and Ismail Ebrahim from CREW will be leading the group and teaching us how we can contribute to collecting data on rare and threatened plants.
