Last week, Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve were fortunate to visit Meise Botanic Garden while on an awareness tour with La Source, a 20-meter-long oil painting depicting the biodiversity around and in the Berg River. There were discussions around future collaborations and joint awareness campaigns around art and conservation. And possibly twinning our future projects.
Friday last week was a truly special day, the unveiling of ‘La Source: The Berg River from source to sea’ at Haut Espoir was a huge success.
Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve has launched its latest project to create awareness of Biosphere Reserves in South Africa (and internationally). The work they, and their partners, do in much needed conservation and development. The idea for the painting came together while discussing art, conservation, CWBR, and an artists’ desire to reach for the paint brush. This is how it is being carried out…
On the 23rd of July 2018, Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve set up an exhibition showing all of the ongoing projects of CWBR at Stellenbosch Town Hall, alongside other organisations including ChangeAbility, Badisa, Winelands Fire Protection and more. The event, to mark the hand-over of funds from Cape Winelands District Municipality to the mentioned organizations as well as CWBR for the new year.
