Nature exploration: A peek at the treasure chest
Expert Talk – Louis Jordaan
Saturday 22 September – 13:00
This is a free event. No booking required.
Louis Jordaan is the owner of “Minwater” (which means Little Water). It is a private nature reserve and is situated 24km southwest of the town of Oudtshoorn in the foothills of The Gamka Mountain, an isolated range in the malaria free Klein Karoo (Little Karoo), between the Swartberg and Outeniqua Mountains. It is a rough, mountainous region which includes high hills and a big plateau. From the high ground, one is rewarded with breathtaking views of the Eastern Klein Karoo and surrounding mountain ranges. Minwater is adjacent to the Gamka Mountain Nature Reserve.
Louis has become a keen observer of flora and fauna on his farm and has counted more than 400 varieties of succulent plants there. His education on flora has extended beyond his local farm. His presentation is entitled Nature exploration: A peek at the treasure chest.
