This site was proclaimed a nature reserve in 2001. Residents formed the Uitkamp Action Group in 2006 to help conserve this precious 32 ha wetland
valley in a renosterveld region, with its 140 different plants and many rare species.

In spring, masses of arum lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica) and pink watsonias (Watsonia meriana) flower in the waterlogged central valley amid restios, besemriet and the rare Ischyrolepis duthieae. The dryer edges are home to moederkappie orchids (Disperis capensis), babianas, sparaxis, moraeas, sundews and purple-and-red wine cups (Geisshoriza radians) as well as a variety of bushes.

The wetland valley is also home to the Cape caco frog (Cacosternum capense) and the Cape rain frog (Breviceps gibbosus), both of which are considered as threatened.
