Outwood Nature Trail, Outwood Rd, Radcliffe, Manchester M26 1AG, UK

About the Event

Unfortunately, the River Irwell and surrounding areas are suffering from the invasion of various non-native plant species. Join the Angling Trust's Environment Officers on a tour of the Outwood Nature Trail to identify some of the most common terrestrial invasive non-native species in the UK including:

• Himalayan Balsam

• Giant Hogweed

• Japanese Knotweed

Attendees will take a short walk along the trail, identify some of the most common invasive plant species, learn best-practice on how to manage such species and hopefully be able to bash some balsam!

The event aims to be inclusive as possible with both physical and non-physical roles available on the day. The Angling Trust encouarge all to get involved! 

What to bring:

• Wear suitable clothing for walking and bashing - not your best kit! 

• A drink

• Sturdy footwear

• Personal snacks/food


  • Fit for Purpose
