BERGRIVIER MUNICIPALITY TO REFRAIN FROM SPRAYING SIDEWALKS, PARKS OR OPEN SPACES DURING ITS BLOSSOMING SEASON
09 SEPTEMBER 2022
Bergrivier Municipality understands the importance of its blossoming season and the value that wild flowers bring during this period, making it a popular tourist attraction.
The Municipality took a decision to delay all spraying of side walks, parks and open spaces in the various towns, to provide sufficient time for the blooming period to complete its annual cycle.
The flowering season started late in August 2022, and is only expected to come to an end by late October 2022. David Carolissen, Manager: Community Services at Bergrivier Municipality, mentioned that the Municipality values the local ecosystem and has therefore taken a decision not to interfere with the blooming of the different kind of plant species. "This course of action will enable us to preserve important plant species, by allowing all wild plants to blossom in an undisturbed environment in which they can seed and mature. As much as we love that our residents and visitors can enjoy a beautiful display of colors and fragrances,these areas also serve as corridors of conservation as well", said Carolissen.
