Friends of the Haenertsburg Grasslands

FroHG is actively pursuing official recognition and legal protection of the Haenertsburg Townlands and other important portions of the Woodbush Granite Grasslands.

Community opposition success story

Sadly, promising Kimberlite pipes have been found about 5 km from the village of Haenertsburg.  The site incorporates some highly threatened ecosystems including portions the Woodbush Granite grasslands.

Ongoing alien plant removal is an important activity to keep bugweed, pines, lantana and others in check. FroHG monitors closely the few problem areas in the Townlands where alien invasions have occurred.

In 2008, FROHG members volunteered to lead the Haenertsburg Village Fire Team which assists the foresters with fires near or in the village.

FROHG members are involved with maintaining the Hiking Trail which meanders through the grasslands and forest patches .

A new project for FROHG concerns two large erosion sites (dongas) on the Georges Valley side of the Grasslands.
