Eco-Active Day: Himalayan Balsam Control

Sat 11 May 2019 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

St Nicks Environment Centre, Rawdon Avenue, York, YO10 3ST

Join us in helping to control Himalayan Balsam – a highly invasive non-native plant species which is threatening the future of the becks by destabilising their banks and luring pollinating insects away from native wildflowers. Balsam removal sessions like this one will be vital to help ensure we can clear as much as possible before it seeds.

Let us know you’re coming by booking via Eventbrite or email
