There are numerous community projects at Kloofendal Nature Reserve that require your help!

Alien Invasive Plant Project

Control of alien vegetation within Kloofendal Nature Reserve is an ongoing project that requires constant effort. There are 2 groups working on alien plant control on an ongoing basis. 

  • FroK Weeding team – meet once a week on a Friday Morning for 2 to 3 hours, starting at 7:30am.
  • Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo, extended public works program weeding team – working once or twice a week with the team, checking on their work and recording accuracy. For days and times please contact Frok.

Alien invasive plant control involves physically removing and cutting invasive plants under supervision. Participants will learn to identify alien plants and their control measures.
