What: Himalayan Balsam Pulling and site visit
Himalayan Balsam is an invasive, non-native plant that prevents native species from growing, chokes our waterways, and causes riverbank erosion. Join us to pull it up - no experience is necessary as we’ll show you what to do! Everyone is welcome - as long as you are happy bending down and pulling up plants! Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
We’ll also be visiting the newly re-wiggled section of Dub Beck, so come along if you’d like to find out more about river restoration.
Please bring waterproofs, clothing suitable for the weather, sturdy footwear/wellies, drinks, lunch and gloves if you have them.
Tools will be provided.
No experience necessary.
Booking is essential, please contact Izzie on firstname.lastname@example.org.
