Discover the hidden treasures in the grassland 

A grassland is much more than meets the eye! You might think that grasses dominate a grassland, but in reality the diversity of wild flowers is much higher. In fact, these wild flowers show remarkable behavioural patterns and include some of the oldest living organisms in the world. Moreover, their biology reflects a dependence on regular fires.Do not miss out on this opportunity to hear and see how Prof. Braam van Wyk reveals the hidden treasures of a grassland with an informative talk. This will be followed by a guided walk where you will have the opportunity to see how spring unveils an amazing diversity of colour, and a natural wonder of adaptation and survival.
