Intrepid CREW members in search of a rare Erica

Members of CREW, an environmental organisation protecting endangered plants, braved the rugged summit of Dragonridge in search of Erica Hippurus (horse heath), a rare and endangered Erica. They miraculously found it hidden in the grass and have written up their find in inaturalist: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/14198648

But they were in even more luck. While bundu bashing they came upon another endangered plant, Agathosma Glandulosa which is very hairy. The group kindly shared their photos and Paardeberg plant list. Hopefully will use our nature reserve for many more searches.
