July 2016 Task

On Sunday 3 July 2016 Lea Bridge Conservation Volunteers will be doing a task to help manage the invasive species encroaching on the Water Vole Refuge. We will be removing seed heads and pulling plants from the South Marsh of Walthamstow Marshes.

Water Voles have a conservation status of protected in the UK under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981, and are classified as a Priority Species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.

Please wear sturdy footwear, wellingtons if possible and appropriate clothing (long trousers) for the work and weather. We will be working in long wet grass.

As always no experience required, all are welcome.

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 (across from the Horse Riding Centre) from 9.30am to gather the tools and leave just after 10am for a walk to the task site.

Indoor bicycle parking is available at Connaught Close. We will return at 4pm.
