St Blaize Trail Hike with CREW
Saturday, 1 June | 8am
Tickets: free, but please consider bringing a cash donation for the CREW volunteers who will be our guides on the day

Dust off your hiking boots and get your cameras ready! The extraordinary coastline between Dana Bay and Mossel Bay comes alive in May/June with the annual flowering of the Aloes and other fascinating indigenous plants. The experts of our local Custodians of Rare and Endangered Wildflowers (CREW) team have offered us a guided tour of the St Blaize Trail. This is an opportunity to see this trail and the plants who inhabit it through new (incredibly wise) eyes!

Two options are available:
• Full 13.5km (±7 hour) hike; high fitness level required
• Shorter 3km (±2 hour) loop; moderate fitness level required

You will need:
• good hiking shoes and walking stick
• sun protection: SPF, hat, sunglasses
• if cold/windy: wind-proof anorak, beanie
• light lunch/snacks
• drinking water (especially for the long hike!)
• camera or smartphone for taking photos
• notebook and pen: to write down plant names

For more info and to reserve one of the 20 spots available per option, please email your name, contact number and preferred hike to grbotsoc@gmail.com by 28 May 2019.
