Friends of Tokai Park Lowland Fynbos Restoration Planting Event

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Date & Time:
June 11, 2022 | 9:00 am - 11:00 am (Local Timezone)

Event Summary:

Friends of Tokai Park is hosting a Make a Difference (MAD) event in the Prinskasteel Wetland, Lower Tokai Park which is part of Table Mountain National Park, South Africa.

We have planned a planting event which aims to restore a wetland in critically endangered lowland fynbos in Cape Town. The aim of the event is to demonstrate the importance of restoration, and create an opportunity for Capetonians to get involved in the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

People are invited to sign-up and select the number of plants they wish to sponsor. Our MAD event will kick off with a guided walk through the restoration trail at Tokai Park, followed by a demo on restoration planting and the unique species to be planted. After this, people will have the opportunity to plant their sponsored plants!
