Clifton Country Park

Around 80 volunteers gathered at Clifton Country Park in Salford over the weekend to remove a plant that’s causing a big problem.

The volunteers from ASEZ WAO group worked to remove a “pesky” plant in the park called called Himalayan balsam on Sunday May 5. Himalayan balsam is extremely vigorous and spreads quickly, out-competing native plants.

According to ASEZ WAO, the plant at Clifton Country Park messes with the other plants and animals, making life harder for them.
