Steenbok pioneers

Joan Nichol who passed away in 2004 recognised the importance of preserving Steenbok Park as a special area and undertook dedicated service in researching and recording the legal alternatives for the establishment of the Park as an environmentally protected area.
Joan’s actions paved the way for these parklands to eventually being recognised as a nature reserve.
Joan’s son-in-law John Zietkiewitz, a tree-lover who lives in Durban intends soon to retire with Sandi, Joan’s daughter, to the family home on Leisure Isle.
John can already be seen, when on holiday in Knysna, clearing invasive plants in the Reserve. What he achieved recently in a week is equivalent to 2 days full time work from an experienced                                                                               and fit gardener. Well done and thank you John.
