Event Details

Our friends from Tyne Rivers Trust are hosting this activity at Land of Oak & Iron.

Biosecurity and prevention is the most effective way to control the spread of harmful, invasive non-native species in our waterways.

Come along to this session (taking place on the field adjacent to the Heritage Centre), where you will learn more about the growing threats of invasive non-native species, improve your biosecurity and help to prevent the spread, improve your ID skills by getting up close with a range of specimens and get hands-on tacking Himalayan balsam!

Balsam bashing starting at 3.30pm and 5.30pm. Biosecurity demonstrations starting at 4.30pm and 6.30pm.

Please note the Heritage Centre closes at 4pm (last food orders 3.30pm) – so if you fancy grabbing a cuppa or something to eat before the sessions start, please arrive earlier.

No booking required. For more information, please contact j.dowden@tyneriverstrust
