This Thursday 6th and Sunday 9th July we will be removing ragwort from Moor Green Lakes. Ragwort is a plant that is harmful to cattle if ingested. We love having cattle on site as they do a fantastic job of suppressing dominant grass species, encouraging a diversity of wildflowers to grow. Therefore we must remove all the ragwort before the cattle arrive! Ragwort pulling in particular relies on lots of attendees to ensure the work is finished so all the help we can get would be fantastic.
The Thursday task will start at 10:15am and the Sunday tasks starts at 10:30am. Both will finish around 3-4pm. Any help is very welcome and you are more than welcome to come to the start for the safety talk, then just do the morning if you prefer. Please meet at the main car park on Lower Sandhurst Road for both tasks.
Please bring a packed lunch, suitable old clothes, waterproofs and boots if you have them. All tools and training and some tea and biscuits are provided. If you are between 16-18 years old you will need to bring an adult to the first meeting please.
Hope to see you there.
Acting Ranger Jenny
