Rotary Know Your Town

Know your Town – a brilliant initiative presented by Knysna Rotary – give local school kids a firsthand look into our wonderful town and what makes it tick! Members of each school’s Interact Club visited a number of institutions from the municipality to the NSRI. The Knysna Basin Project was privileged enough to be part of this initiative this year – and we spent a beautiful morning at Bollard Bay introducing the kids to the estuary and some of its more common inhabitants. We also discussed waste and how we can play a part in conserving our beautiful estuary.
We would like to thank Knysna Rotary Club for including us in this initiative as well as all the interactors! We love initiatives like these – equipping our youth with the know-how of how to make a difference!


Bollard Bay Member Outing

Our first estuarine outing on the 24th January for 2016 proved extremely popular, with over 50 enthusiasts joining us. These outings are a wonderful way for the public to acquaint themselves with our estuary and its inhabitants.
