Himalayan Balsam is an invasive weed that clogs waterways. The ACA has been fortunate to obtain an award from the South Devon AONB’s Sustainable Development Fund to produce a leaflet asking the public to let us know where, in the Avon’s catchment, this weed is a problem and to volunteer for ACA ‘balsam bashing’ working parties in the early summer. A pilot scheme to clear the weed is likely to take place in Duke’s Mill Creek, off the Tidal Road, and details will be provided on this website for those interested in joining.
