Big Dee Day - The Invasion
This is the third year of direct combat against highly invasive non-native plants that are threatening the well being of the ecology to the River Dee.
Volunteers, community groups, landowners, school groups and anglers have been assisting staff from the AONB, Snowdonia National Park, Wrexham, Flintshire and North Wales Wildlife Trust to make a real difference.
And the difference is noticeable.
So much so, that we won't be including a key site in Corwen as it is practically free of balsam! It just goes to show that a coordinated campaign can make a difference.
There is though many miles of river-bank that has escaped such a campaign. last year, with the kind assistance of Llangollen Outdoors, the AONB were able to map from Llandderfel to Llangollen. The two day raft survey yielded just how much more work is required.
Why not come along and join us for more bashing this year? For more information, ring 01978 869618, or like this page on Facebook
