Balsam Bash

Come and join us as we embark on a second round of Himalayan Balsam bashing at Knights Park and Middle Mill to kick-off Volunteers Week. Our first Balsam Bash a few weeks ago went well but to finish the job we need to ensure we pull out any of the invasive plants we missed and any regrowth. If left to its own devices this vigorous invader will take over and destabilise the riverbanks of the Hogsmill, so this is important work to encourage greater biodiversity. Plus it's good fun on a sunny afternoon!

No need for prior experience, just energy and enthusiasm! You'll be given a full briefing, gloves and tools, and refreshments will be provided after.

To sign up for this Volunteers Week biodiversity event, please email Jemma Houghton at with your full name, KU number, telephone number, and the volunteering event title by 12noon on Friday 31st May 2013.

Date: Monday 3rd June 2013
Time: 2pm - 4pm
Location:  Middle Mill car park, near Knights Park Campus Map.
