We now have a special iSpot Project in which to group all the observations of wildlife and wildflowers on Meadowridge Common. Everything that is posted on iSpot from in and around Meadowridge Common will be added to the project as long as certain tags are put in when the observation is posted. The tags are "Meadowridge Common", "Cape Flats Sand Fynbos remnant" or "Meadowridge indigenous verge flora". To get there, click here.

Meadowridge Common is an officially designated Conservation Area.

What is Cape Flats Sand Fynbos?
Cape Flats Sand Fynbos has characteristic fynbos families such as proteas, ericas, restios (reeds), buchus, daisies and geophytes (bulbs). It is mainly short-to-medium height shrubs interspersed with restios.
It occurs on acid sand.
Less than 1.2% of Cape Flats Sand Fynbos remains in the Cape lowlands.
