Mike Woods Environmental Education Centre - Helderberg Nature Reserve<p>​We believe that through environmental education, we will form partnerships to conserve, protect, nurture and care for our environment and invoke in the youth community a sense of environmental pride and responsibility that promotes environmentally sustainable lifestyles, behaviour and actions.</p><p>The Mike Woods Environmental Education Centre based at Helderberg Nature Reserve offers programmes such as medicinal plants, general biodiversity, flora, ecology, birds, ecosystems and fauna. Programmes can be tailor made. </p><p>The centre also hosts special environmental days/weeks and activity-based learning such as litter clean ups or invasive species removal. Talks and guided hikes can be arranged.</p>GP0|#eefb27eb-ee80-4b58-9ce0-539807249e0a;L0|#0eefb27eb-ee80-4b58-9ce0-539807249e0a|Education and training activities;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#31b82723-f130-43cd-8f0a-2117b9cfeef9;L0|#031b82723-f130-43cd-8f0a-2117b9cfeef9|Classes and workshops;GP0|#25c40646-bfe3-49af-8017-8d279ff33f37;L0|#025c40646-bfe3-49af-8017-8d279ff33f37|Educational programmes;GP0|#40934f2d-4025-4496-9bbe-0b96d5c12d17;L0|#040934f2d-4025-4496-9bbe-0b96d5c12d17|Functions and events<p>For a detailed list of costs please consult the tariffs in the document downloads section below.</p><h4>​General enquiries</h4><p> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em><a>021 444 5949</a></em></p><p> <em>Fax: </em> <br> <em><a>021 444 9749</a></em></p><p> <em>Email: </em> <br> <a href=""> <em></em></a></p><h4>People and Conservation Officer</h4><p> <em>Telephone: </em> <br> <em><a>021 444 2572</a></em></p><p> <em>Email: </em> <br> <a href=""> <em></em></a></p>GP0|#b2c3428f-d170-4c1e-b648-7ef17f00bca5;L0|#0b2c3428f-d170-4c1e-b648-7ef17f00bca5|Nature reserve;GTSet|#4be4596d-cdfe-41f7-a569-9d9c4e16c716;GP0|#d662c5f6-f850-4a9d-8962-74abfbecb182;L0|#0d662c5f6-f850-4a9d-8962-74abfbecb182|Facility hire<p>​​​</p>Verster Avenue, Somerset West<p>​​Fees vary depending on the activities.</p><p>​Monday to Friday <br>07:30 – 16:00 <br> <br>Prior arrangements can be made if access is needed after these hours.</p><img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
