River Rom: Himalayan Balsam Bash

Booking information


Up to 30 people


Join Thames21, LBBD Rangers and Thames Chase Trust in making a difference in your local community by helping us to tackle the invasive species- Himalayan Balsam- along the River Rom. We are calling for volunteers of all ages (parental supervision required for under 16’s) to help us to actively improve the river Rom.

This is part of the Rewild London funded initiative called The Chase LNR River, Wetland & Meadow Restoration and Creation Project.

Thames21 has been entrusted by London Borough of Barking and Dagenham funded by the GLA’s Rewild London Fund to deliver a wetland restoration/enhancement strategy for the River Rom floodplain and associated green spaces. This part of the project (Phase 2) has been conceptualised and developed as part of of the Land of the Fanns Partnership Scheme (LoTFs).
