The Balsam Bashes are now well under way and a huge thank you to all the volunteers who have already been involved, we could not do it without you.
Information about the upcoming events are below. Please, click here if you want to see further dates for the summer.
Our final two work parties for the summer will be as follows:-
Friday 24th August Kentmere Tarn (north end)
We’ll be checking over the areas we cleared balsam from in July. Please bring waders if you have them otherwise wellies are a must.
Meet at the Fisherman’s car park NY458033
Thursday 30th August Kentmere Tarn (south and west bank)
We’ll be checking patches cleared in July. Wellies/Waders. Meet in the layby by the Hollingworth and Vose factory entrance.
We will have no further organised work parties but it would be so helpful; if you can keep checking for plants into September/October as we know it continues to grow and seed. Also to keep looking out for new patches as we are still seeing the ‘Storm Desmond’ effect with patches of balsam appearing in areas that have been clear in previous years. If you can let me have a description and grid reference for any patches you see that would be helpful
Finally – a big thank everyone who has come along to help out this season.
Please e-mail or message Judith if you are planning to attend a work party, to confirm numbers on the day.
