Cranford Park (Hillingdon/Ealing border) thigh waders clean up and invasive species removal
18th July 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Come and join Thames21 removing litter directly from the river which has become trapped around fallen trees. Cranford Park has 2 fallen trees which are attracting a lot of litter making it an eye sore and damaging the health of the river. We are going to be in thigh waders removing the rubbish. If we have enough time at the end, we will remove an invasive species, Himalayan Balsam from the river banks which causes the banks to crumble. If the plant was not removed, the river would be wider and shallower, and not able to support as many species in Cranford Park. If you do not wish to go into the river, your help is vital to as half of the people need to be on land for this event.
The starting location for the event will be in the car park next to St Dunstan’s Church.
All Equipment is provided by Thames 21 but please wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions Under 16′s are more than welcome as long as they have a responsible adult accompanying them.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
