Coastal Walk Flower Guide: 2nd edition now available
On 16 Dec 2017, the FoBCA held its year-end function at Eerste Steen Resort, where Friends gathered to enjoy having their olfactory senses stimulated by the aromas from the braais wafting on the "gentle" Southeaster breeze.
The occasion was marked by the launching of the newly published 2nd edition of the Coastal Walk Flower Guide. This guide is for the novice to easily identify flora according to its colour on the Coastal Dune Trail in the Blaauwberg Nature Reserve (the 4.5km loop trail that starts opposite Eerste Steen Resort - map inside cover) and can be used on many other walking routes that have Cape Flats Dune Strandveld vegetation along the West Coast. It contains beautifully clear colour photographs of approximately half the species recorded on the Dune Trail itself. Here and there throughout the guide are little extra fun facts and at the back is a Quick Guide to the flowering months of each species.
Get your copy for R100 each at Eerste Steen Resort, as well as at Starke Ayres, West Coast Village, Sunningdale.
