This Project aims to tackle a significant threat to the Park as a whole from the dispersal of weeds being brought further into the park from the entrance area. A weedy park entrance provides an abundant seed source that can then be carried further up into the park on boots, paws and tyres.
The focus of the project is to remove weeds from the edge of the track. Near the entrance gates weeding work has included at least 35 different weed species, including olive, broom, boneseed, Rhamnus, scabious, dog rose, Tangier pea, and vinca. Work to ensure these species are prevented from moving further into the park continues with the aim of allowing the native plants to reestablish, and to reclaim the area.
