Win field guide to enjoy area

With the scenic village of Clarens located on the western edge of the Maloti-Drakensberg, the Clarens Village Conservancy (CVC) offers a taste of biodiversity quite special to this region.

It forms an area of overlap between western arid elements, moist eastern elements, Afromontane elements, and Drakensberg alpine elements.

As such, there is a treat for adventures around every corner in this rugged environment.

In Rodney Moffett’s book, A Field Guide to the Clarens Village Conservancy, he attempts to make a visit to the CVC more meaningful by providing a brief background on the village itself, the history of the CVC, a description of the climate, weather and physical environment, and brief descriptions, with images, of some of the flora and fauna to be seen.

Moffett, who now lives in Clarens, is an honorary research fellow of the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of the Free State (UFS).

Dr. Ralph Clark, director: Afro-montane research unit of the UFS Qwaqwa campus, said thanks to active and well-managed civic organisations such as the CVC, this natural heritage will not go unappreciated.

“We are truly privileged to live and work in this environment, and hope that this field guide will inspire many visitors to come to marvel at our mountains and its treasures.”
