5 days until the 3 Rivers Clean Up!

There isn’t long to go now until the start of this years 3 Rivers Clean Up.   Previous years have seen hundreds of volunteers taking part removing tonnes of rubbish and Himalayan Balsam from the Ravensbourne catchment.  Now in its fifth year, this unique partnership programme has been highly successful in removing and preventing the spread of Himalayan Balsam in the Ravensbourne River catchment. With this invasive species a little more under control, this year we can broaden our focus to include other issues such as litter, and habitat regeneration.
