So far this year we've cleared a total area of approx 94ha (940,000 square metres) hand pulling Himalayan Balsam to improve #biodiversity with help from our brilliant volunteers and priority actions grant funding from @EnvAgencyYNE and @Calderdale which made this all possible!


Taking advantage of a cool start to strip out this patch of Himalayan balsam. Surprise, surprise, growing on a pile of soil & rubble at a building project. Forecast heat can bake it later!
This is near the head of our beck so we don't want it spreading downstream #INNS
