Barn Swallow Site Improvements 2014
Lake Victoria Viewing Site

The Lake Victoria swallow site underwent some major improvements this year. The proceedsBarn Swallow Site Improvements 2014 that are
collected at the entrance are used for these projects, so if you have paid the entrance fee then you have contributed towards this project, collectively we can all make a difference and Thank You to Swallow visitors for your support.

We began with alien clearing on the lower most viewing terrace, it was unbelievable how infested it was down there and the alien vegetation was completely blocking the view and taking over the terrace.

Next we created seating and corrected a narrow terrace, adjacent to this we carved another small terrace and bench area.

On the left side of the viewing site we alien cleared and planted new screen plants next to the bordering property.
We then carved into two wasted space banks to create two more viewing terraces each with a parallel flower bed.

Dube Tradeport supported this project and supplied 1100 indigenous plants from there nursery. Thank you Dube Tradeport.

An intense three days of planting ensued, very hard work!

The IBA sign was updated
