Wiltshire Avon – Invasive Plant Project Launched
A new three-county project to stem the spread of non-native invasive plants throughout the River Avon and its tributaries is being launched.
Wiltshire Wildlife Trust is joining forces with Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and Dorset Wildlife Trust in an attempt to get rid of invasive alien species species such as Himalayan balsam, Japanese knotweed and giant hogweed that threaten to overwhelm native wildlife, including salmon, brown trout and lampreys, in the waters and on the banks of the internationally important river catchment.
Called Source to Sea, the project has received substantial backing from the Environment Agency.
