Alien Invasive vegetation, where the Branch as a founder member is represented on the Southern Cape Weeds Forum. Information sharing and good news is our point of departure. The forum meets twice a year & meetings take the form of fieldtrips to alien clearing projects, sharing methodologies, experiences & discussing successes & failures. Updates on the latest Alien Invasive Plant Species, biological control methods & legislation are disseminated. Illustrated articles about specific problem species, their impacts, control methods & often the most suitable indigenous substitutes are available.
Members' own conservation projects, which are featured quarterly in the Branch Pages under the heading Jewels of the Garden Route in the Society's Veld & Flora journal. Membership to the Society entitles members to receiving the journal at no charge.
The UNESCO approved Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve and the Garden Route Biosphere Reserve are both endorsed by BotSoc. The Garden Route Branch encompass both Biosphere Reserves & maintains representation on both fora. Quarterly Forum meetings rotate among the various towns within their domains. Forum meetings are characterised by excellent presentations focussing on the Biosphere Reserves' own projects, regional environmental topics & concerns, as well as current environmental legislative updates. A great opportunity for getting to know the region!
