Please diarise the date for the Friends of Muizenberg Park AGM and make sure to be there.
The meeting will be held at False Bay College in Muizenberg (please use the York Road entrance). ALL welcome to attend the meeting.
Apart from nominating a new committee and brief formalities, we will welcome as our guest speaker at the AGM, local bee researcher Jenny Cullinan with a talk entitled "Bee Conservation in Urban Areas - and what this could possibly mean for Muizenberg Park".
Bees are a keystone species that hold the biodiversity of the fynbos together here on the Peninsula. Understanding their importance is key to our very own survival. Habitat loss plays a huge role in the decline of bees and we need to understand the importance of protecting habitats for bees. Through a number of interventions - including making public parks bee-friendly spaces - we can safeguard our bee population. Join us on 6 July to understand what's possible and how we can help.
Indigenous plants important as forage for bees in the Cape include fynbos such as ericas and others, some of which are found in the Park and others we've recently planted.
