Removing Himalayan Balsam

A group of East Lothian conservation volunteers are having 2 work parties to remove Himalayan Balsam from the River Esk walkway.

Thursday 29th June, 7pm, for about 2 hours
Sunday 9th July, 4pm, also about 2 hours
Extra hands would be very welcome. If you can come please wear protection in case of nettles or small lurking hogweed. It would also be helpful, but not essential, to email Katy Baird at so that she has an idea of numbers, and can notify everyone if the weather stops play. The group are meeting at Job Centre Plus then setting off up river.
