Water of Leith Trust need some help from volunteers
The Water of Leith Trust are looking for a volunteers to map the presence of Himalayan Balsam (HB) along the Water of Leith from the Visitor Centre to Balerno.
This information will feed into a weed management plan covering all of Edinburgh’s Natural Heritage Sites. This will lead to a more strategic approach to weed control and hopefully unlock more funding to make this happen leading to a healthier Water of Leith.
Whilst HB is still in flower, we are very keen to get this species surveyed so we have an understanding of where it is present on the Water of Leith itself as well as on adjacent ground. The window isn’t that big as HB is starting to set seed which makes it harder to spot, so we really want to crack into this over the next couple of weeks.
