Hacking Team at Zandvlei Nature Reserve – April 2012.

This is a working relationship with the City of Cape Town and the Zandvlei Trust.

Bert assisted by Robin carried on finishing off the steep slope section. Milan joined us after the rain shower. I carried on with the Manatoka tree in the quarry area. Robin filled a large bag with bottles for the recycling igloo. Robin, Milan and Bert moved along the first ridge from the southern end pulling out seedlings and cutting saplings. We also deflowered a pampas grass stand, before we finished for the afternoon.

The weather clouded over with intermittent showers, clearing with sunshine later, we saw no butterflies and heard very few bird calls. We noticed the nasturtium seedlings starting to sprout. Also the Cape Honey Suckle is in bloom.
The Morning Glory creeper has formed a halo of flowers on the canopy above Robin.
Pampas Grass is a category 1 invasive plant, we removed the flower stems and will attend to the rest next month.
