We will be hosting a short meeting on Thursday 22nd June 1900 at Dailly Primary School (Dailly Primary School, Main Street, Dailly, South Ayrshire, KA26 9SB) to coordinate volunteer efforts to control invasive weeds on the Girvan catchment. Anyone who is able to attend and can help with the project are very welcome.
The meeting will focus on making our control efforts as efficient as possible and maximising everyone’s efforts. Many individuals have been controlling Invasive Plant Species since the end of the Carrick Invasive Species Project and have been doing an admirable job. If we have sufficient numbers we would like to hold a couple of balsam bash events, dates for which can be discussed at the meeting.
If you are able to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 01292 737300.
