Help the Rangers – Weekday Work Party

13 June @ 10:00 am

Weekday Work Party 

When:  Thursday 13th June from 10am – 3pm
Meeting point:  Lakeside Car Park, Station Road, GL7 5LU (opposite Lakeside Brasserie) [OS Grid Reference: SU 061967]
Task:  This month we will be removing Himalayan Balsam along the Old Railway Line from South Cerney. Himalayan Balsam is an invasive annual plant which can spread very quickly. It grows rapidly, out-shading and out-competing our native species, so we need to do our best to prevent it spreading. To do this we will be hand pulling Balsam before it comes to seed, to reduce the risk of it spreading (seed pods burst and spray seed quite dramatically when touched).

Please bring along a long sleeved top in case there are any stinging nettles lurking among the Balsam.

If you would like to join the work party or would like more information, please email kieren.thomas@waterpark.org or michael.diss@waterpark.org
