Workshop: Fire management of the Haenertsburg grasslands

The Friends of the Haenertsburg Grasslands are hosting a workshop on the fire management of the critically endangered Haenertsburg grasslands! For the past ten years a 3-year rotational burning programme has been implemented according to the current Environmental Management Plan (EMP). It has, however, been observed that woody species are encroaching on the grassland, necessitating an adjustment of the EMP. The aim of the workshop is to engage all stakeholders in a discussion, and to agree on a management plan which focuses on maintaining, and possibly improving, biodiversity in the Haenertsburg grassland.

Date:     21 October 2014

Time:     9:00-12:30

Venue: Haenertsburg Village Hall
