Cleanup on Workers’ Day

A group consisting mainly of  residents of the South African Astronomical Observatory spent an hour on Saturday morning cleaning up the path from Observatory to the pedestrian bridge over the Black River, between the Observatory and Valkenberg Hospital. They filled a dozen bags of rubbish and recyclables plus half a wheelie bin of broken glass. With the help of their local conservationist James Cooper they anticipate that any remaining wood, which might be attractive for making campfires, will be removed in the near future.

We hope that this will begin to make this area safer for the general public.

  1. To Whom it may concern,
    I am currently doing a monthly Clean up of the Liesbeek River between the N2 and the River Club. The next Cleaning Day is on the 6th April 2013 from 8.30am to 3.30pm. I would also like to discuss with you the existing plan for establishment of a wetland at this stretch of river and a possible inclusion of such project for Design Capital 2014.
    Please contact me at or 0721453010 in order to set up a meeting.
    Best regards,
    Ricardo Sa
