Urban Trail – Bird of the Year

20150410_154046One of the aims of the Woza eNanda Urban Trail project is to draw the community’s attention to the environment and learn about local plants and animals. On the 9th April 2015 Sanele Mvuyane from Durban Green Corridor visited the eNanda Ohlange Library to give out a poster of Bird of the Year 2015 (Blue Crane). The chief Librarian MR Sabelo Qwabe was very interested and they set up a display cabinet of different books about birds. Go and check it out!

After the final steering committee meeting of the year, a guided walk for key stakeholders of the Urban Trail project was organized on 8 December 2014.  Among the participants were teachers of the local schools, members of the SAPS, local community structures, INK Tourism and Durban Green Corridor. Gary Cullen welcomed and briefed the stakeholders. Participants were then divided into two groups, one guided by Mlungisi Mthembu, the other by Thabo Zulu assisted by Sanele Mvuyane. Along the way, explanations were given, local entertainment options checked out and food and beverage items sampled. In time for the Festive Season, Durban Tourism has produced a brochure that includes guided tours of the Woza eNanda Urban Trail.
