Himalayan Balsam

Crowborough’s new Wildlife Group are organising a conservation task in The Ghyll.

The Ghyll is a valley carved out by a stream flowing from the north at Silver Jubilee Recreation Ground (off Green Lane), and stretches down to Burdett Road in Jarvis Brook. It is an important to biodiversity and consists of species-rich meadows and ancient woodland. The Ghyll has statutory designation as a Local Nature Reserve. It is managed by Crowborough Town Council’s Ranger.

On Sunday 24th July from 10am until 12noon volunteers will be removing invasive non-native species like Himalayan Balsam.

If you are interested in helping with this conservation task, or future ones, please send them an email and register your interest.

If you go along on 24th July, please take gardening gloves and (if you have them) secateurs and loppers. The meeting point is down the path that goes down to The Ghyll from Green Lane (what3words: motor.mural.ground). Map.
