Nature club

Hillcrest Conservancy is hosting an ‘River Health’ Nature Club on Fri 19 at Springside Nature Reserve for 9 -12 year olds. R 80 per child.

Hillcrest Conservancy has pleasure in offering their Nature Club in Springside Nature Reserve for younger members of the community.

The event will take place from 09h00 to 12h00.

The theme is ‘Fresh water invertebrates and river health’ and Springside Nature Reserve is an ideal place for children to spend time outside and get in touch with nature.
