Event Summary:

Kenilworth Racecourse Conservation Area (KRCA) is a 52 hectare privately owned reserve by Cape Racing Hollywood Bets and managed by Nature Connect. We will be restoring an area of critically endangered Cape Flats Sand Fynbos that has previously been taken over by invasive Kikuyu grass. With plants from our on-site indigenous nursery, we want you, your family and friends to come and join us to revegetate the area.

Practical Details:

We will meet at the Wetton gate entrance of the Kenilworth Racecourse and start with a brief of the day and the background and history of the area. We will then proceed with a guided 1km walk to the restoration area. Participants should wear weather appropriate clothes with hiking boots and bring along garden gloves, a sun hat, water and a camera to capture their work! RSVP is essential so book your spot now!
