Very special double-date conservation weekend Dome wetland pompom rescue (a lot of pompoms had to be abandoned last week, too many to get out!) and Grootkloof pompom search party The new owner of the property directly west of Dome, Mr Mukesh, gave us permission to drive up to Dome top for conservation work.

So we plan to do Dome Saturday, sleepover at Afrisun Camping at the start of the track up and go to Grootkloof on Sun. Special rate for us R50 pp for the night – own tents on grass, lapa for braai, ablution block, but no electricity. Need 4wds to go up… Volunteers please?  (this could be the opportunity for the new members who ticket Conservation box on their application forms, to get involved?)

Please let OTTI know asap if you can help, as she would like to let Afrisun know how many people/tents. You are welcome to attend for only one day if not for the weekend.

Bring the usual pompom ‘weeding’ gear: old clothes, water sandals or old boots for the wetland, a marked fork [to know which is yours] – a ladies’ fork works well – garden gloves and a plastic bag to carry out the flowers.
