Hurrah for our volunteers!
Our volunteers have helped us to achieve some great work over the past few months.
There has a
been a mammoth effort in June to tackle Himalayan balsam, pulling 44,500 plants in only 2 days! We started at Tipalt Burn wh
ich is at the top of the catchment – a more efficient way of stopping the seed pods from travelling down the catchment to prevent this evasive species from spreading.
There’s been more than 110 hours of litter picking to stop plastics and waste from damaging river habitat and being ingested by birds and river life.
And our volunteers have also constructed more than 15m of willow weave along the river at Corbridge to repair the bank and prevent sediments running into the river.
