May 2016 Task

On Sunday 1 May 2016 Lea Bridge Conservation Volunteers will be doing a task to help manage the invasive species on Leyton and Walthamstow Marshes.

We will be roaming the marshes, removing #JapaneseKnotweed, #GoatsRue and #HolmOak.
This task will remove the need to use #weedkiller on #WalthamstowMarshes to remove these plants which are damaging the #biodiversity of the Nature Reserve.
We will have the assistance of a Carry Me Bikes to transport the tools and any knackered international travelling #volunteers.
#Glutenfree and #vegan snacks have already been bought along with the non-vegan and gluten loaded ones.

Please wear sturdy footwear  and appropriate clothing for the work and weather.

As always no experience required

Please bring some lunch. LBCV will provide tools, training, gloves, tea, coffee and biscuits.

We will meet at 1 Connaught Close, Leyton, London E10 7QS from 9.30am and leave at 10am for a mini-bus trip to the task site. Volunteers are welcome to meet us on site, before the tools talk, please text 07757 766950, before 9am on Sunday, so we can provide enough tools and gloves. Indoor bicycle parking is available at Connaught Close.

As usual we will have post task refreshments in the Hare and Hounds on Lea Bridge Road.

Practical Conservation, making a difference
