Barbara was a valued plant expert and excelled in identification of trees, shrubs and even tiny forbs, both indigenous and exotic.
She was an enthusiastic and valued member of the Marloth Park Honorary Rangers and the Marlothii Conservancy as well as a Kruger National Park Honorary Ranger.
Barbara led our Bush Rehabilitation project on Seekoei Road as well as the development of Gruispan with the planting of trees, controlling of alien plants and plans for nurturing of the grass cover. Her tree identification and labeling function for the Property Owners was appreciated by all. She was the key person in the preparation of the ‘Plant Waterwise’ brochure. She also held training sessions on alien invasive plants for the Municipal teams.
We shall remember Barbara’s willingness to help, her kind, smiling face, her infectious laugh and her great sense of humour.
Barbara was a friend to many of us. We will miss her very much.
Our condolences to her husband, Stuart, her children and all her family.
