On Saturday 25 June, Cardiff Rivers Group made a return to Forest Farm to help the Rangers clean up the Melingriffith feeder stream, as well as removing Himalayan Balsam, and doing a general litter pick of the area.
Numerous trees blocking the stream were removed, and the branches and brash used to make a “dead hedge” to protect the banks from further erosion.
In addition, we removed a number of “invasive” sycamores that were crowding out the banks of the stream, thereby letting more light in and allowing the native plants and tree to flourish.
Thanks to everyone who came along and made a difference!
