Grasses in Henk van Rooyen Park

Please note that the following grass species are all located within the Henk van Rooyen Park area. These grasses have all been identified during the weekly Saturday morning bird and nature walks and no doubt there are still more species to be found. If you would like to know more on grasses (and other aspects of the bush) you are most welcome to join us on the Saturday morning walks.

Obviously there are many other species of grass not on this list which are found within the Marloth Park and Lionspruit area.
