Free Training – Non Native Invasive Species Management

We are all cooped up at home at the moment but nature definitely isn’t and now that it is Spring everything is starting to grow and blossom. This includes non native invasive species which wreck havoc on our river systems and other habitats resulting in habitat degradation, increase flood risk and economic costs to you; but together we can help manage them and prevent their spread. We will be holding two workshop, 19th and 20th of May which will teach you how to manage invasive species.

Invasive Species Landowner Workshop – 19th of May

We are inviting all landowners and stakeholders in Colne Valley to join us for an online interactive workshop about invasive species present in Colne Valley. Plus we shall look at effective control and reporting programmes across the Valley and explore collaboration opportunities with you. This workshop will include ColneCAN, Environment Agency, CABI and Colne Valley Consultative who wish to help. Find out more here.
