  1. Gloves (gardening will be fine)
  2. Suitable outdoor clothing such as waterproofs and sturdy shoes
  3. Bringing a drink is normally a good idea
  4. Medication for yourself if you require it (please notify the volunteer coordinator before the day or before the walk starts)
  5. Emergency contact details
  6. Watch the weather conditions and plan accordingly, i.e. sun cream, hat if necessary

We’ll be hand pulling the non-native invasive plant, Himalayan balsam and also getting some beasties out of the river to have a look at in trays.

Bring wellies and gloves to get stuck in. We’ll be starting with the balsam pulling around 10.30.

The initiative will be a component of a local Environment Day, featuring a variety of activities hosted by different organizations.
