Balsam Bashing – Wednesday 19th June

Balsam Bashing – Wednesday 19th June

Himalayan balsam is an invasive non-native species which dominates riverbanks, reduces biodiversity and worsens erosion.

Tyne Rivers Trust would love to work with local residents to clear the Himalayan balsam along the Riding Mill burns. This is really easy to do as the plants has such short roots and it’s a great way to spend a few hours outside, improving habitats and meeting other local residents.

Tyne Rivers Trust is the only environmental charity dedicated to improving the River Tyne and its tributaries. The work that we do is vital to tackle the effects of climate change and support the wildlife and landscape of the Tyne rivers. We want a better river, a better region and a better life for all. Volunteering is a great way to spend time outdoors, meet new people and is vital to help us improve habitat and make the river a better place to be.

Join us on Wednesday 19th June to learn about this alien invader and spend a couple of hours pulling it out.   We’ll meet at 10 am in the Old Playground, Church Lane.
