Controlling Invasive Non-Native Plants - Leaflet Launched.
The Dee Catchment Partnership (DCP) has produced a new 'Controlling Invasive Non-Native Plants' leaflet. This helps to assist the River Dee Trust and River Don Trust with their volunteer programme to control the plants along the river. The leaflet provides a guide to the key four invasive plant species (Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam, Japanese Knotweed and American Skunk Cabbage), a list of do's and dont's and contacts for volunteering. This has already proved a valuable resource at promotional events and volunteer days, will be included in a postal drop locally to attract more volunteers and be used by rangers and land managers to spread the word on Invasive Non-Native Plants. The DCP hosts information pages on Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) for Aberdeenshire Council and Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), which provide an overview of legislation, agency roles, key species, control, reporting and funding.
