Useful resources and documents for Conservancy members.

Alien Control Plan

The following documents were provided by the Department of Environmental Affairs in order to apply for herbicide for control of alien vegetation. The Conservancy does not support the use of herbicide except under exceptional circumstances and encourages landowners to do their own due diligence on all compounds. 

  1. Guidelines for Compiling Invasive Species Control Plans  On Private Land 

  2. An example of a detailed alien control plan for a farm in Hoekwil. We don’t need nearly the same detail. Include a Google earth map in your plan. 

  3. An example budget

Fire – Emergency Procedures

Since the devastating fires that wreaked havoc in Knysna and Plettenberg Bay last year, local landowners have been concerned about similar incidents occurring in the Duiwenhoks area. The Southern Cape Fire Protection Association (SCFPA) has provided useful information to landowners on immediate action procedures in the event of a fire. 

If you are a landowner and would like to join the FPA, see membership information and application form below.
