Title: Walk: Silvermine Source to Sea
Description: Walk to raise funds for the Riverine Rovers who look after the Silvermine Wetlands. The Silvermine Source to Sea hike follows the route of the Silvermine River for much of its length. It takes you from mountain catchment with fynbos through pockets of indigenous forest, across ancient dune fields down to the coastal wetlands and eventually to the sea. The Silvermine River is one of the most pristine freshwater systems within the Cape Metro and although the hiking route is not well known, it is accessible and interesting. Participants are requested to make a donation or to ask friends or family to sponsor them. No amount is too small, but the more money raised, the better the River Rovers will be able to look after the lower Silvermine Wetlands.
The walk starts at the reservoir, and ends at the Clovelly parking area, Main Road. It should take the average walker about four hours. Participants can walk the whole route or part thereof. Suggested sections are: Reservoir to Gate 1, Reservoir to the Sunbird Centre or Reservoir to Clovelly.
Bring your own fluids and clothing suitable for the weather on the day.
Please contact Heron on 021 7825079 or a committee member of FOSNA for an entry form. The forms can be returned with the sponsorship donations at the start of the Hike.
Start Time: 13:00
