Initiatives in the Reserve: Print Fire

About - Our vision
Fire Map          

The Modderfontein area and Reserve have been subjected to veld fires for many years.

Occurring inside an urban area the management of veld fires is very important and difficult. The impact of fire can be devastating to small animals as well as removing food for larger animals.

Fire can also have a beneficial remedial action as well and as such veld fires need to be carefully controlled and managed as part of an overall management plan.

Alien vegetation and veld condition can be improved by burning certain sections of veld at certain times of year. (click here for fire map).

This is in place and is being managed in the Modderfontein reserve.

Please be very cautious when utilising the reserve, especially in winter. One unattended fire can have devastating consequences to the Modderfontein reserve.
