Join the practical work party to remove himalayan balsam from the Bear Brook, Aylesbury.

Himalayan balsam, a pesky invasive non-native plant, has established itself along the R. Thame and some of its tributaries. These plants bully their way into habitat, over shading and out-competing our native flora. They are good disperses and can easily spread using explosive seed pods that shoot seeds several meters into the nearest watercourse.

Thankfully they are shallow rooted and easy to pull out.

What’s involved? Spend a few hours walking lengths of stream pulling out balsam plants before they can set seed and help to clear space for native plants to grow.

What do you need to bring? Please bring wellies, a water bottle, lunch and maybe a sun hat. All other equipment, including gloves, will be supplied.
