Koornhoop Corner - Site #64


Guus

Identifier of this site

Grassy patch with some trees but otherwise not too appealing yet. The idea is to first work on adding nice vegetation next to the path that cuts across.


Why is this important?

This site is located in Mowbray. Mowbray 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.
