10-11: Strydpoort Mountains southeast of Pietersburg close to the Wolkberg Wilderness Area. Reuben will be leaving Pretoria early on Saturday morning to arrive at the destination by 9am. Camping out on Saturday night. Conservationist Cor van den Berg and botanist Pieter Winter will be there. Species: Silver Sugarbush - Protea roupelliae, Common Sugarbush - Protea caffra, Transvaal Sugarbush - Protea rubropilosa, Transvaal Beechwood - Faurea saligna and maybe more.
Don't forget the last Annual Get Together which will be held at the Riviersonderend Mountains in the Western Cape from 21-25 March 2001.
The above trips address some of the major gaps that have been highlighted in the Northern Provinces Interim Distribution Map and to check on some significant herbarium records that have not yet been atlassed. If you cannot attend the field trips but may be in any of these areas before the end of March, please let Reuben Heydenrych know and he will send you the detail of the data to be checked.
For all of these areas, there is a significant amount of roadside atlassing that can be done, so do not be put off by thinking that you need a 4x4 or need to do a large amount of hiking.
