Event description

Description

This is a FREE ENTRY annual event organised and promoted privately, combining fun and satisfaction with a smidgen of work at stunning Whitepark Bay on the North Antrim Coast. Will you help make a difference?

"It was actually almost therapeutic" - Deirdre from Portstewart

NO EXPERIENCE OR TOOLS NEEDED. SUPERVISED KIDS & DOGS WELCOME

SAT 20 JUNE 2020 is the chosen date and although a free event, can you please REGISTER soonest. This helps us manage parking and prepare for the day. We'll send a reminder nearer the time when you can change the numbers or cancel if your plans have changed and you can no longer join us.

Our 2020 target is for a mega 200+ VOLUNTEERS to donate 30 minutes or so. An hour will burn up serious calories! The more who help, the more land we'll free-up from problem plant species without mowing or spraying.

"Hard work in the sun, but very enjoyable. Followed by picnic and beach play. Definitely back next year." Ballymoney Scouts

The event itself is run by the National Trust as they are site custodians and have responsibility for Health & Safety. Head Ranger Dr Cliff Henry & Team manage the land on an on-going basis.

All species have a place in nature but some must be kept in check so others can also flourish. Team Henry's dedicated and on-going work is becoming more evident. The likes of blackthorn have been brought to a level that gives opportunities for other species to emerge, including several orchids and bluebells which are once again able to put on their dramatic spring show.

We'll be adding info before and after the event on the Facebook page Picnic & Pulling. Meantime, please could you LIKE & SHARE the page?
