BotSoc supports SANBI: new story boards for Kirstenbosch's erica garden

​On Friday 21 Oct. 2016 six stunning new story boards were unveiled in Kirstenbosch's erica garden. This wonderful collaborative project has resulted in beautiful informative interpretation boards to create awareness and educate. These will be of great use to educators, garden guides and all visitors to the garden. We encourage you to head on up to the erica garden and see, learn from and enjoy them yourselves. You can view a few pictures on our Facebook page.

The BotSoc is proud to be associated with these passionate individuals and collaborating in a manner which aims to serve the environmental education and awareness focus in terms of our very special floral heritage! This initiative is aligned with Target 14 of the National Strategy of Plant Conservation, which speaks to the importance of plant diversity and the need for its conservation incorporated into communication, education and public awareness programmes.

Thank you to everyone involved. ​
