Milnerton Conservation Area Walk - 23 November 2008
Page 1/19 next >>
Our walk in the Milnerton Conservation Area (MCA) on Sunday 23 November took place in near perfect weather conditions. The south easter, which had been blowing hard the previous day, gave us a break although it was gusting stronger later in the afternoon.

Approximately 30 people joined us for this walk through the northern part of the conservation area and then into the restricted southern part. We walked through the block that was burned in April this year, and then into the area that will be burned in 2010. Because of the sensitivity of this area, the southern part is closed to the general public, except when walks like this are organised.

You can read more about the MCA and the fire under the item 'Milnerton Conservation Area' on the left menu.

Although we were a bit late in the year to see most of the spring flowers (high water levels in the conservation area prevented us from taking an earlier scheduled walk), there are still large numbers of flowering plants in bloom.
