A number of specialist interest societies and NGOs have been extremely helpful in assisting us with redeveloping the Hillside Dams area. We are grateful for their generous advice and hope that this will mark a more long-term association. Several of the groups have already come back to use the area and with the construction of the various infrastructural projects we hope that they consider this their home ground, holding their various meetings and presentations at Hillside Dams.

Some of those with whom we are cooperating include:

The Aloe, Cactus & Succulent Society of Zimbabwe

Matabeleland Branch

Birdlife Zimbabwe

Where they exist we have indicated the websites of the various groups, but most are small and do not have the funds to operate such relative luxuries. We have therefore extended to them as a small way of thanks the opportunity to advertise their linkages as well as details of up and coming events on this page. We do not organise these events, neither can we be held responsible for the regular updating of the information.
