Please note: this event has been CANCELLED due to heavy rain forecast and cool temperatures predicted which means working alongside the river with higher flows is not safe. We are sorry to disappoint however new dates will be announced soon!

We need your help to remove Floating Pennywort a non native invasive species threatening our local rivers. Unlike our native Marsh Pennywort, Floating Pennywort is invasive and can rapidly grow up 20cm per day forming dense mats of vegetation completely covering the river creating a number of problems including crowding out native plants, reducing oxygen and light levels. For further information on Floating Pennywort see here: https://www.colnevalleypark.org.uk/invasive-species-in-colne-valley-regional-park/

Join us for a free fun session removing this plant from the River Colne flowing through
