Ezemvelo Honorary Officers are a group of volunteers who offer their time and knowledge to support and supplement the Ezemvelo staff based at the various EKZNW Reserves. The HO Corps consists of a number of different groups many of which are tied to a specific Reserve.
The group based at Krantzkloof, is active in various activities associated with the Reserve – these activities are both conservation and resort oriented. Many of the HOs are also members of Kloof Conservancy and share the common goal to promote environmental awareness and conserve our area’s natural heritage for present and future generations.
HO Duties include:
- Guided walks – on 1st & 3rd Sunday of each month
- Picnic site hospitality
- Fund raising towards upgrades at the Reserve
- General maintenance & repairs
- Monitoring and reporting on flora, fauna, invasive alien plants
- Public education
- Upkeep of this website and Krantzkloof Facebook page
- Assisting neighbouring Conservancies and other organisations, as required (eg Open Gardens, Back to Nature days, Botanical Society Plant Sale, etc.)
At the 2017 Provincial AGM held at St Lucia, the Kranztkloof Honorary Officer group was awarded a Certificate of Merit for their contribution the Ezemvelo.
