This page is aimed at FroK members, what you mean for us and how to join. 

Role players

Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ) manage Kloofendal Reserve and are responsible for its welfare & maintenance.  JCPZ is wholly owned by the Johannesburg City Council who of course get their income from the ratepayers who account for most of the public that use the Reserve.

Your committee does unpaid volunteer work in the Reserve and deals directly with all the parties shown in the diagram alongside.  

What membership means to us 

While most of the work is done by or guided by the committee, we view our members as complementing the committee, the guides and the volunteers who help us look after the Reserve, as illustrated in the adjacent figure.

Vision of the Friends of Kloofendal (FroK)

Friends of Kloofendal envisages the Kloofendal Nature Reserve preserving natural fauna and flora, managed according to sound ecological principles, where many people enjoy the natural environment in safety and peace.  The facilities in the amphitheatre area support the nature experience with displays and educational materials, and provide a base for guided nature walks and environmental educational presentations as a service for all.  The Confidence Reef, site of the first goldmine on the Witwatersrand and the first stampmill in Kloofendal, are part of the Environmental Education programme in the reserve & amphitheatre area.

                                Notes on our emblems

FroK's first emblem.  Enclosed within Protea roupellia is the dam with a green Malachite sunbird (pollinator of the roupellia, a mountain reedbuck and a mining pick.  Below our motto ”Preservation for enjoyment”.

Thank you John Hill 

 A more modern, two-tone design that simplifies FroK's first emblem and adds our status as a Non-Profit Organisation.  The centre represents the Poison bulb (Boophane disticha) with its leaves coming out like a fan, with our common helmeted guinea fowl on the left, a mountain reedbuck on the right and, in the centre pointing down, a mining pick.

Thank you Jonathan Auret
