Educational Fynbos Walks

We had a wintry Educational Fynbos Walk last week with 40 excited boys and girls….

They learnt about the different kinds of Fynbos and the different textures and smells of the pelargonium and buchu leaves.

Then we headed off on the walk…

Learning about the local fynbos and the Port Jackson aliens:

The thirsty dogs had a drink of rain water…

We passed a UCT students project to gauge pollution in the area – it measures nitrogen.

Walking on along the misty trail…

with stunning views of Scarborough

A beautiful Rotstert/Babiana ringens so appropriately called “rats tail” for its common name

Back to the nursery for a bit of Q & A

And then a well deserved play in the playground!
