Description

Join our volunteers at Parc Slip for some hands-on conservation work, fresh air and exercise and good company.

Himalayan balsam is an invasive non-native species that shades out native wildflowers and erodes riverbanks, as well as causing other issues for UK wildlife. Luckily it is easy to pull out, so come along and help us remove this invader, and keep Parc Slip full of lovely native wildlife.
