Staff from West Cumbria Rivers Trust will help people “go on the pull” and remove the invasive non–native Himalayan Balsam from Longlands Lake and upstream reaches of the River Ehen.
The event has been organised as part of the North East Copeland/Howgate/Distington Community Lengthsmen Scheme, a partnership funded by the Copeland Community Fund, Home Group, and local parish councils, facilitated by Copeland Borough Council.
The event takes place on Tuesday 30 June from 6pm until 7.30pm. Everyone should meet at Longlands Lake Car Park, Cleator.
The activity is open to those from participating parishes in North East Copeland, Howgate and Distington. Those aged 16 and under should be accompanied by an adult. Gloves, long sleeve clothing and outdoor footwear is recommended.
