Join us on Sunday, 29 November, for a talk by Vincent Carruthers on "The Magaliesberg Biosphere - The Mountains of Wonder".
The Magaliesberg Biosphere Reserve was designated by UNESCO in June 2015. The idea of a biosphere reserve was put forward by Vincent Carruthers in November 2006 and for the past nine years he and a team of colleagues have worked constantly to win this prestigious international recognition. The region covers the mountainous country between Pretoria and Rustenburg and includes the Cradle of Humankind. Biosphere reserves are fairly new in South Africa and not widely understood. In an illustrated talk at Delta Environmental Centre, Vincent will explain what a biosphere reserve is and why this area in particular is so globally important.
A booklet "The Mountains of Wonder" - a celebration of the Magaliesberg Biosphere, compiled by Vincent Carruthers, will be on sale for R50.00.
Please join us for this fascinating and entertaining illustrated conversation about the Mountains of Wonder - an important biodiversity area on the doorstep of the fastest growing metropolitan area in the country.
Tea/coffee/biscuits will be available from 10h30
Talk from 11h00 to 12h00 with time for questions.
Adults R50; pensioners and children R30
