Portland - Wildflower management at Silklake Quarry.

Silklake Quarry is accessed off Wakeham outside Easton and lies behind the Bumpers Lane Housing development


Today EuCAN and Butterfly Conservation volunteers will be working on the areas of Silklake Quarry behind the Bumpers Lane development that have been reseeded with local wildflower seed. The aim will be to remove the unwanted ‘weed’ species like Canadian Fleabane, Buddleia, Teasel and Willowherb that are threatening to smother the limestone loving species that we want to see established there.

Meet at 9.30am at the carparking area (see map), bring refreshments and a picnic lunch. If you have a sack or a dumpy bag it would be useful.
