Balsam Bashing, 3-5 Saturday 9 June

Ickenham Festival event: come and help us exterminate invasive Himalayan Balsam. All ages welcome. Please wear sensible footwear, gloves and long sleeves. Balsam is harmless to us, but out competes local species and damages riverbanks.

Bug (and wild flower!) hunt, 3.45 Friday 15th June

Ickenham Festival event: annual counting and recording of the different plant and insect species on the Marshes. Last time we found the world’s biggest slug, 20 different wild flowers and some amazing butterflies/

Scything on the Marsh, September details TBC

Come along and enjoy the art of cutting grass by hand, or just enjoy watching scythe mowing in action. We’ll be cutting some sections of the Nature Reserve at the bottom of the Austin’s Lane track.
