Himalayan Balsam

Himalayan Balsam

Description: Join us to help stop the spread of an invasion on the nature reserve! We will be removing the non-native plant Himalayan balsam to improve the habitat for wildflowers. The control of this invasive species is very important for conservation and the more people who can help, the better.

Accessibility and Conditions: This event may involve some walking to reach the area of the reserve where we will be working. In some places the ground may be rough and boggy. We will be manually pulling the balsam which is very easy due to the shallow roots and so this can be very therapeutic! May involve some bending down to reach the plants.

Make sure to bring plenty of water and food to keep you going and please remember that unfortunately there are no toilets provided at the nature reserve.

Please contact Lorna by email or phone 01656 724100 if you would like to come along.
