BIRDATHON – FALSE BAY NATURE RESERVE

6 MAY 2017 AT 8.00AM

False Bay Nature Reserve Birdathon: Fun Walk and Festival!
BirdLife South Africa, the Cape Bird Club and the City of Cape Town will be hosting the fifth annual False Bay Nature Reserve Birdathon: Fun Walk and Festival on the 6th May 2017 at the False Bay Nature Reserve. The event will draw on the successes of previous years, and provide some small improvements to our already successful model. The Fun Walk approach will once again have a continuous start from 08h00 – 09h30; as participants arrive they can immediately register and begin walking; allowing participants to slow down and enhance their learning experience during the walk. The Festival component (from 09h00 – 13h00) is again planned to include many of the favourite exhibitors, such as Eagle Encounters, the Cape Reptile Association and a “carnival-like” atmosphere at the picnic area on the Eastern Shore of Zeekoevlei.

Where: Zeekoevlei Road off Strandfontein Road (M17), Zeekoevlei Picnic Area
Cost: R5

FIRE & FYNBOS AWARENESS DAY – ELSENBERG COLLEGE

23 APRIL, 9AM – 4PM

The main focus of this year’s Fire & Fynbos Awareness Day is the water crisis that is severely impacting our community. A challenge that is facing us all is to help protect the Boland Mountain Water Catchment areas that provide 60% of the Western Cape’s fresh water supply.

As volunteer firefighters, vws battle the wildfires that sweep through, and ravage those precious areas, and do that with great passion and dedication. Come meet our volunteers and other firefighting agencies – it promises to be a fun day out, with loads of activities for the whole family!

It’s non-stop entertainment for the children as they learn about fire, fire safety and firefighting. Fire Truck rides, Climbing and Abseiling, Pumps and Hoses, Snake Shows and interesting exhibitions are all part of the day.

A definite highlight will be the wildfire firefighting demonstrations – at 11:30 and 14:30 – showing what a VWS crew does best, as well as full aerial support from a Firefighting helicopter, and other firefighting agencies on the day.

Don’t leave hungry! Volunteers and Friends of VWS Jonkershoek will provide a bustling food court and a tea garden throughout the day.
