Sans Souci Bridge Patch - Site #62


Friends of the Liesbeek

Group associated with this site

This site is located next to the Sans Souci Bridge and the Liesbeek trail, along the Liesbeek River. It is a bit abandoned, with quite some glass and litter. However, there is a lot of potential with the river flowing right next to it and some benches providing a seating area. The Friends of the Liesbeek team has recently cleared the more aggressive vegetation and in the cleared areas more suitable indigenous vegetation can be planted. We have chosen a selection of nectar-rich sunbird plants from the Cape Flats Sand Fynbos and Peninsula Shale Renorsterveld to start. This site is also situated close to Penisual Shale Fynbos vegetation type area so we will see what plants from these three different vegetation types survive best.

Why is this important?

This site is located in Newlands. Newlands 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.
