ART secured limited funding from Tescos ‘Bags Of Help’ fund to help control Invasive Non Native Plant Species (INNPS) on the Stinchar and Girvan catchments this year. This funding will allow us to control Himalayan Balsam and Japanese Knotweed on both catchments.

ART will be holding two balsam bashes on the Stinchar catchment on Sunday the 23rd of July at 2pm. There will be two meeting points, one at the Bridge at Hallowchapel on the Stinchar and one at the shop in Barhill (Duisk River).

Everyone is welcome to come along and lend a hand at either of these events so please spread the word. A couple of hours of your time could make a huge difference in these areas.
