Various locations in Horsham, 10am - 4pm
Fancy getting your wellies on? ARC and Horsham District Council have teamed up to help restore the Arun to its former glory. The aim is to clean the river of rubbish, remove invasive plant species and cut back encroaching vegetation. If you love the river and want to help for a few hours, then get in touch!
- Monday 27th June - Shandy's Close. We will be litter picking and pulling Himalayan Balsam - a non-native plant that contributes to river bank erosion. Download the flyer HERE.
- Monday 4th July - Ben's Acre. We will be litter picking and clearing the area of the delightfully named non-native Skunk Cabbage. Download the flyer HERE.
- Monday 18th July - St Mary's. We will be litter picking and clearing the river bank of any rubbish as well as removing Himalayan Balsam. Download the flyer HERE.
We'll provide all the equipment and training on the day and cake as a bonus for all the hard work. Himalayan Balsam is easy to pull as it is shallow rooted and Skunk Cabbage needs to be dug out with forks and spades. There will be bending and lifting involved for these tasks but everyone can work at their own pace. Come for a couple of hours or the whole day.
