Bishops Boys Identified Patch - Site #106


Identifier of this site

Is patch in the down corner of sports club next to Liesbeek river

Why is this important?

This site is located in Rondebosch. Rondebosch is located in close proximity to Table Mountain, and there is a lot of potential to create 'stepping stones' within the area that allow animals (like birds) to come down from Table Mountain and expand their territory, possibly connecting with other areas in the region. However, in order to have a funcional network of stepping stones it is important that the right species are planted throughout the neighbourhood, and that there are sufficient green sites in the area.
