SPRITE project on the River Don replaces invasive plants with native wild flowers
Posted on July 07, 2014
Volunteers for the River Don Trout in the Town project (SPRITE) have successfully replaced invasive Himalayan balsam on a section of river bank with a range of native wild flowers and grasses. For photos and video, see Paul Gaskell’s blog post here
The SPRITE team are now on the trail of Giant Hogweed – a very nasty invasive plant that causes a rash that becomes worse when exposed to the sun. See blog post by Ian Rotherham here.
